Our journey takes us through the gardens of the Villa Borghese, past the Castel St. Angelo - formerly a papal fortress, to St. Peter's Square. Here, accompanied by the guide, we are admitted to the Papal Audience. After a message of hope given in a number of languages, his Holiness imparts his blessing.
The audience can be held in either the Sala Nervi or in the Square. The time of the audience may change and in this case, the start time of the tour will change accordingly. This tour is subject to the Pope being in the Vatican and no special events taking place. Appropriate dress should be worn. On the 11th-18th-25th August 2010, the audience could be held in the summer Pope residence in Castel Gandolfo, 25 km from Rome. The tour will be provided at no extra cost. If you wish to know where exactly the Papal audience witll take place, please contact the Vastours office at the number show on your voucher, the day before your tour takes place.
