Tour itinerary

In order to arrive at the Vatican City, this guided tour will pass by some of the most famous sights of the city, starting with the Piazza della Repubblica with its Nayad Fountain then the beautiful Piazza Barberini with Bernini's lovely Baroque Tritone Fountain. Continuing along the famous Via Veneto, the tour will reach and then follow the ancient Aurelian Walls, passing by the impressive Villa Borghese Park until we get to the Piazza del Popolo, the northern entrance into Ancient Rome with its Egyptian obelisk dating back to the time of Ramses II. Just before arriving at St Peter's Square, we pass by Castel Sant'Angelo and the ancient tomb of Emperor Hadrian.

The Papal Audience will take place either in St Peter's Square, St Peter's Basilica or the Audience Hall, depending on the seasonal conditions and the number of pilgrims involved. Our local guide will advise you when and where to meet the bus at the end of the audience for your return.
