What to Expect
Enjoy an audience with Pope Francis I, and pray with him to receive the Apostolic Blessing on a full-day tour of the Vatican City.

The weekly Papal Audience is a special event for Catholics and non-Catholics alike, and lasts approximately 2 hours, during which there are speeches in Italian and other languages. After the blessing, enjoy a short break before skipping the long lines to the Vatican Museums.

See masterpieces of art and antiquities collected by successive popes over the centuries. Journey through periods of art and civilization, such as the classical art of Greece, to the Renaissance works of Michelangelo. Your guide will explain the history and secrets of the Catholic Church, and tell you about the rivalries between Renaissance artists.
