The Papal Calendar

The Catholic Traveler’s Guide to Rome is offered completely free to be sure you have the best pilgrimage experience – and it is only possible because of my generous Patrons. Please consider supporting my work with Patreon or Venmo. Thank you! 🤍

General Audiences are currently held in the Paolo IV Auditorium. All Angelus Papal Blessings are still taking place in Saint Peter’s Square. No tickets are required. Note that Papal events may be cancelled with little or no notice.

How to request tickets to Papal Events.

Here’s a video of me getting into a Papal Audience just in time for the Papal drive-by.
