The audience will be held in St Peter's Square, there will be a seating area near the front for ticket holders on a first come first served basis. Please plan to arrive early to get a good seat.

The Papal Audience will typically begin at 10:00am and will last between 1 1/2 - 2 hrs. Security will typically open between 8:00-8:30am. 
As Rome can get extremely hot in and the Audience is outside it is good to come prepared. Bring hats, sun screen and water, you can also bring something to read or occupy yourself with while you wait for the Audience to start.

You will need to pass through Security scanners similar to the airport to access the audience, it is advisable to bring only small bags or backpacks. Items such as pocket knives, corkscrews, scissors and similar objects will not be permitted through the checkpoint.
