Few people know about the possibility of requesting free invitations for the Papal Audience directly to the Prefecture of the Vatican.
It is a wonderful mystical experience!
The invitation is reserved to some areas where you can sit ( without assigned places), very close to the Holy Father!
In St. Peter’s Square every Wednesday at 10.00 am (when the Holy Father is in Rome) you can attend the Papal Audience, by invitation only.
- At this address: PREFETTURA DELLA CASA PONTIFICIA – 00120 – Città del Vaticano
- This is the FAX NUMBER: +39 06 6988 5863
- This is the list to complete for the request:
- Date of General Audience or Liturgical Celebration
- Number of tickets required
- Name / Group
- Mailing address
- Telephone and fax
It’s simpler than you think!
Tickets of the AUDIENCES (all free of charge) must be collected at the appropriate Office set up at the Bronze Door of the Apostolic Palace (Piazza San Pietro, Colonnade on the right) starting from the Tuesday preceding the chosen Audience from 3.00 pm to 7.00 pm or the very morning of the Audience from 7.30
Tickets of the CERIMONIES (completely free) must be collected at the Pontifical Swiss Guards' post at the Bronze Gate (Piazza San Pietro, Colonnade on the right) starting from the day before the ceremony from 9.00 to 19.00.
Important Notice: All requests for tickets to participate in the celebrations of December 24th, December 31st and January 1st 2019 that will be received by this Office after December 1st, will not be taken into consideration.
You need to bring your documents. Will also receive a nice souvenir from the Holy Father.
