Papal Audience Invitation and St. Peter's Basilica Tour

Attend the Papal Audience in the Vatican City and take a guided tour of St. Peter's Basilica

See the Pope himself on a special early-access visit to the Papal Audience ceremony and guided tour of St. Peter's Basilica.

Receive your invitation for the Papal Audience from the staff at Piazza del Sant'Uffizio, just in front of St Peter's Square. Then watch the Pope make his way to the stage and join the weekly gathering which includes prayers, blessings, and a homily.

After the audience, enjoy a guided tour of the iconic Basilica of St. Peter. As you tour the Renaissance-style church, with its famous dome and unrivaled architecture, see masterpieces like Michelangelo's Pietà and Bernini's Baldacchino.

The guided tour into St. Peter's Basilica will take place after the Papal Audience. The timeslot available is 12:30. The staff will book the first available on the date of the audience. Please contact us in case you need a specific timeslot.
