A Wednesday morning with the Pope


Every Wednesday morning (except when the Pope is not in Rome), Pope Francis has the General Audience in St. Peter Square to address the people who gathered there and to give his blessings.
It's a great way to live a very special aspect of the Eternal City and everything it has to offer.

Itinerary

We will meet in St Peter Square on the right side at the end of Via della Conciliazione, looking at the Basilica.
We will go through security and I will know where to seat in order to be able to see the Pope up close.
The seat will be granted until the end of the General Audience
The tour will end in St Peter Square and since you'll be already inside the Vatican, after the Audience you will be able to visit the Basilica without standing any additional line

A Recent Review of this tour

Monica was fantastic. She knew exactly where to go, when to go and what to do. She also introduced us to a merchant, who has a clean restroom in back for the best clients. She told us a great deal about the Papacy and history of the Vatican. She also arranged pickup at the hotel and after a series of alleys and trips down streets that did not look like streets, we popped out and she was standing there. She is a real treasure and I highly recommend her to you as a 5-star guide in Rome.
