When in Rome... make it your mission to see the pope himself. Join this special tour for early access to the papal audience ceremony, and witness the pope in action! It's not every day you get to see such a figure of importance up close.

Although papal audience tickets are free, organizing it all yourself can take precious time out of your trip to Rome.

Cut out the hassle by joining this small group. You'll have plenty of time to secure a good place to watch the pope make his way to the stage.

You'll be wearing headsets en route to St. Peter's Square, so you can always hear your guide over the crowds. Once in position for the pope's arrival, you'll get an in-depth insight into the papacy and the traditional papal audience ceremony.

This weekly gathering includes prayers, blessings and a homily, and it's usually just a nice way for the pope to interact with the general public. Will you be one of the chosen few he talks to?

With crowds getting up to 10,000 people strong for the ceremony, there's excitement in the air whatever happens!
