It was very sad that we never had a good appearance of the Pope the seating arrangement done was not appropriate and too many people to see the Pope. If so many people are coming to see the Pope I can imagine during Jesus time there must be more than that and I remembered the miracle of 5 loaves and 2 fishes and Jesus feed all the people after he had mercy on the people. I felt the Pope's experience is just commercialized and hyped with too much tourism in Rome and i being a catholic dont feel good about it although I am a staunch catholic.

Good guide with humor. Very detailed about history.

Gathering to see the Pope is an age-old tradition in Rome and now you can be a part of it. The Papal audience is usually held either inside St. Peter’s Square, at St. Peter’s Basilica, or the Audience Hall. This depends on seasonal conditions and the size of the papal audience. However, if you’re visiting in the summer then the audience is generally held at the square.

Before getting to St. Peter’s Square, you can choose to glance at Castel Sant’Angelo and grab an Italian breakfast. Your guide will tell you when and where to meet before the Papal audience begins, easing your navigation through the crowd. Else, you can opt for a guided tour of St. Peter's Basilica and follow an expert to discover the secret symbols hidden in the basilica.

Accessibility

  • Disabled people are welcome as this experience is pram/stroller and wheelchair accessible.
