Consider purchasing a Papal Audience ticket for late spring or early fall for pleasant weather. During the winter, Papal Audiences are often held inside the Paul VI Audience Hall. With far less capacity, tickets are scarce and there is a higher chance that you’ll leave Rome disappointed.
You can get to Piazza San Pietro by metro. Then walk south on Via Ottaviano towards the piazza. However, a local will tell you that the regional rail service is the best way to go. Take Line FL3 to the Viterbo-Roma stop. There are also many bus lines with stops near Saint Peter’s. Try taking line 40 to the Traspontina/Conciliazone stop or line 64 to the Cavalleggeri/San Pietro stop.
You can enter the Vatican if you have a visa to enter Italy.
Vatican City follows a strict dress code for both men, women and children. Make sure that your shoulders and knees are covered.
You can visit the Vatican Museum for free on the last Sunday of every month between 9 am and 12:30 pm while St Peter's Basilica is free to visit on all days.
