You'll begin this special day with a relaxing coach tour across Rome. Your city tour includes a live commentary and offers a brief introduction to Rome as you travel by bus to the Vatican City.

I use a wheelchair. The tour guide from Green Tours was more than accommodating. After arriving at Vatican City He directed us to The handicap area where my wife and I were escorted to the side of the main avenue utilized by the pope mobile to get the Basilica. As the Pope passed we were no more than 4 feet away. This was a highlite of our trip to Rome. You should take the opportunity!

Tour guide recommended the perfect spot to stand for the papal audience. We ended up just a few feet away from the Pope as he drove by!!! Experience of a lifetime!

Skip the line was really helpful with pre-purchasing on Viator with the Papal Audience ticket. However, I think if the organizer / operator can help to deliver ticket to buyer's hotel before the event, it will be a lot more easier upon checking in the hotel for the buyer. He or she can also plan her/his own schedule more easier.

This was very well organised and we had no waiting around and seats to sit on.
A very moving experience.
