Papal Audience and guided visit to The Vatican treasures
The Papal Audience tour is often a once in a lifetime experience for many visitors to Vatican City. The Papal audience is a public event, but of course, only so many people can squeeze into Saint Peters Square to be close enough to hear the Pope speak. The event is televised and broadcast throughout the world on Vatican TV and radio, however, to be their in person for this wonderful blessing is truly amazing.
At Vatican Tour Service, we can provide you with the free tickets and even attend the event with you as long as you request tickets about 3 weeks in advance. The Papal Audience is held every Wednesday morning around 10:30 in the morning, beginning with a mass. After the mass, His Holiness will read from a written text with viewpoints and the opinions of the Roman Catholic Church. Your personal official Vatican guide will be able to translate the words into English for you so you will not miss any of the events. After the reading, His Holiness will then begin to bless the crowd in their own languages. This amazing event has everyone feeling the excitement.
After the Papal Audience tour your personal guide, will then be able to provide you with a tour of Vatican City. Here you will be able to embrace the history of the Roman Catholic Church and early Christians as well as view historical documents from Ancient Egyptian.
