Every Wed morning when the Pope is in town he holds a Papal audience. Some friends and I went to see the new Pope. Tickets are normally available and one obtains them beforehand. Getting in that morning is very hectic as the crowds are enormous and you are advised to get there 2 hours early so you can sit in the open sun baking away. Thank goodness we went in April.  The audience was a bit over an hour.  Was a nice, long morning.
