Nawas' Pilgrimages to Rome and Italy Are Our Most Popular Tours
Millions of the faithful come to Rome to celebrate their faith in the heart of the Catholic Church; now more than ever with the extraordinary draw of Pope Francis. The beloved Pope has captured the imagination of millions with his humility and call for healing, and Catholics are making the pilgrimage to Italy to seek his inspiration.
For a pilgrim, the typical visit includes an Audience with the Pope and visits to the four major basilicas: St. Peters, St. Mary Maggiore, St. John Lateran and St. Paul's outside the Walls. Other favorite pilgrimage sites in Italy include Assisi, Padua, and San Giovanni Rotondo. With the temperate weather, fewer crowds and lower prices, November through March is our client's favorite time to make a pilgrimage to Italy.
