Harley Davidson has given Pope Francis two of its classic motorcycles to mark the brand’s 110th anniversary and on Sunday hundreds will be allowed to park along the road leading to St Peter’s Square while the pontiff recites the Angelus prayer.
Between 1,000 and 2,000 bikers are expected to fill St Peter’s Square for the Pope’s blessing – the highlight of a four-day event in Rome to celebrate more than a century of Harley Davidson.
More than half a million Harley Davidson riders and fans from around the world are expected to head to Rome for the event taking place from 13-16 June .
The entire length of Via Della Conciliazione, leading from St Peter’s Basilica to the River Tiber will be turned into a giant Harley-Davidson bike park.
Wonder if he’ll ride the machines?
