The tickets are free but you need to reserve them online in advance of your date at their website. I did ask that they email me back to... More

It acts in his name and with his authority for the good and for the service of the particular Churches and provides the necessary central organization for the correct functioning of the... More

I have no idea how the inside looks like, but outside was so beautiful, especially at the sunset, everything will be orange.

Be sure to go with an enpassioned and informed guide who can bring the days of Rome to life! Where Caesar trod slaves toiled and Latin ruled.

Best experience of a lifetime to be able to attend and see pope Francis. Our guide brought us inside and instructed us to stay near the fence where the pope mobile passes. We got a close look a the holy father and listen to his homily. It's a must if ur in Vatican

We went to Sundays general blessing when the Pope opens the window and gives a short speech then blesses the crowd. I didn't know when to arrive so we sat in the shade and reflected on being in Roma and what was about to happen. Because of the heat most people also sat in the shade. At about 11:50 they... More

I failed to visit in, but it has its historic and religious meaning. If you are catholic, you really want to visit here. Even if you cannot get in.

Wish we'd read these review before we went to Rome! Wrote to the Pope ages ago and asked for tickets, got a letter back and went to see him on June 17th this year. We arrived really early at about 8.30am to collect our 'tickets' as we were asked, from the gold door and a swiss guard? We arrived to... More

If you're looking for something both different and meaningful to do in Rome, this is it. While we were there, Pope Francis preached a brief but powerful message on being faithful to pray for the sick. The audience itself isn't long, but since summaries are given in about seven languages the process can take a while. Get there early to... More
