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

This was excellent - excellent - excellent; I am the traveler /travel agent and I'm afraid if I rate our Papal Audience with the Pope and Monica's service she will never be available for future clients. We had a group of 13 and when I confirmed the event, she informed our group that she would guarantee seeing the Pope. Been in the business for over 40 years, and I am cautions of guarantees. However, she did it! Our group of 13 were within 5 feet of the Pope! They were over the top excited!
