During this last year, nearly 4 million people attended events with the Pope at the Vatican, 800,000 more people than the previous year.

The data is calculated from the number of free invitations requested of the Vatican and sent, mostly online, to pilgrims.

In 2013 more than 6.5 million people visited Rome after the new pope was named.
