Johanna Koch-Mueller, 70, of Munich, Germany, holds a sign reading: " Danke guter Hirt" (Thank you good Shepherd) upon arrival at the University compound in the outskirts of Rome. Tent camps like this one have been set up around the city for pilgrims.

Travel agents reportedly are having trouble keeping up with requests, especially in the pope's native Poland.
