Embark on a spiritual journey
Submerge yourself in a country which adopted Christianity at its very inception. Italy Pilgrimage Tours are an amazing opportunity to follow your faith. Pilgrims have been travelling to Italy for centuries to walk in the footsteps of St Paul and St Peter.
Travel to Rome, the eternal city, starting at the Roman Colosseum on the Palatine Hill. Explore the Vatican City, home of the Catholic Church.
Visit Lanciano where the Eucharistic Miracle of the Church took place and then head to San Giovanni Rotondo where St Padre Pio spent much of his life and visit his tomb. Visit the Sistine Chapel and the many sites associated with the Catholic Church and St Paul. Trace the footsteps of the apostle who came to Rome to spread Christianity. As if this experience wasn’t remarkable already, our local tour guides are able to truly bring the Bible to life. Experience the awe as you head to the Papal Basilica, one of the four major Basilicas of the Roman Catholic Church. Visit the sites of St Paul’s martyrdom, the Abbey of the Three Fountains and the Mamertine Prison. See where miracles occurred and watch as your faith is strengthened and renewed.
While Italy offers an opportunity to learn, to truly experience the depths of history and religion, it also offers an opportunity to reflect, to pause in the quiet of peaceful monasteries and bask in the beauty of the land.
