Tour description provided by Viator

Book your ticket for a Papal Audience with Pope Francis I in the Vatican City. The Papal Audience tickets are free of charge but you must reserve them. This service guarantees to reserve those tickets to see Pope Francis I. The price includes a presentation and explanation of the events of the Papal Audience to prepare you for the gathering.

Begin with meeting the guide near St. Peter's Square where you will be provided with headsets. Your guide will explain the origin of the Papacy from the first Christians through Constantine's era and up to the current wonder of the Holy See. You will discover the history of St. Peter's Square created by Bernini in the 17th century as you become familiar with the smallest sovereign state in the world. The presentation unveils the fascinating history of the Papacy and the artists that contributed to the marvel of Vatican City.

Next, witness the audience at Vatican City.
