Italy/Papal audience


Do you think it is worthwhile booking a private audience with the Pope?  I realise when they say "private" there are 1000's of people there.

Hello Jenny,

In a word no. It takes a lot of organizing and a lot of time and at the end of the day it's on;only for the open air Wednesday papal audiences where you will be sitted closer to him. To check out all the details open up this link:

My advice is to simply go along around 10.00am on one of his Wednesday audiences when you are next in Rome and enjoy that experience without all the fuss of 'moving up closer' to him.
