Itinerary of the Papal Audience and Vatican Museum Tour

Papal Audiences and Vatican Museums Tour
9 hrs. | Start: 8 a.m. | Participants: 25 Max | English-speaking tour, and arranging in other languages on request is possible.
Meeting Point: Next to the Vatican Museum entrance.
The group will meet the guide and head towards the heart of the Vatican City – St Peter’s Square.

Along the way, your guide entertains you with exciting stories about the Vatican, including its rich architecture and history. You will also learn about the different Popes, their love for art, and their collection of religious artifacts. Once the group clears the security checkpoint at St Peter’s, you will join the weekly audience with Pope Francis. Visitors worldwide book in advance to be part of this momentous occasion. St Peter’s is the preferred place for the audience as it allows visitors to sit or stand and can accommodate up to 80,000 visitors. It is a rare spiritual moment, and very few experience this in their lifetime. The Papal audience ends around lunchtime, and you will enjoy lunch at a local restaurant.

Vatican Museums

Then, the three-hour afternoon tour of the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel starts. As you pass through the Vatican Galleries, you will see art collections, frescos, sculptures, fountains, marble columns, and many other treasures. Experience Raphael’s masterpiece, ‘The School of Athens, ‘ celebrating the Renaissance style. ‘Laocoön and His Sons’ is an almost life-size ancient sculpture showing the Trojan priest Laocoön and his sons attacked by sea serpents. Your guide will tell you who survived and who perished.

Sistine Chapel

Your Papal audience tour includes skip-the-line access, giving you direct entry to the Sistine Chapel. The group can visit the conclave hall, where the new Pope is elected.

Marvel at the frescoed ceilings painted by renowned artists such as Michelangelo.
The tour ends here.
