Next Wednesday the Papal Audience returns to the intimate setting of the San Damaso Courtyard.
By far the best location for a papal event I’ve experienced.
Pretty much everyone can meet the Holy Father.
From last summer
For those interested in attending an Audience in the Cortile San Damaso, currently no tickets are required. Just show up for security in front of Saint Peter’s Square by 7:30 AM on Wednesday. You’ll be escorted through the Bronze Doors and into the Courtyard. The Holy Father arrives around 9:30 AM and it’s over around 10:30 AM. If you don’t get to meet him on the way in, wait for the end as he walks out.
