If your visit to the Eternal City includes a Thursday…
Pope Francis has become very popular in just a few days. His austerity and his evident love for those in need have been welcomed as a breath of fresh air by people from all faiths, who are eager to at least get a glimpse of him.
If you are among those looking forward to see him personally we have made this brief guide to help you during your visit.
The easiest and most common way to see the pope is to attend the public blessing he gives every Sunday at noon. People from all around the world gather at Saint Peter’s square, so it’s quite a tale to tell back home!
Those looking to have a closer contact with the pope can attend the audience that takes place every Wednesday. The tickets are free but you have to book them in advance sending an actual letter (no e-mail) to the Prefecture of the Papal Household, 00120 Vatican City State or a fax to the number +39 06 6988 5863. Your message must include date of the General audience or Liturgical celebration you wish to attend, the number of tickets you need, name, mailing address and telephone or fax numbers.
