Religious Pilgrimages to the Vatican City

Rome

Rome is one of the most visited destinations in Europe with more than 2,500 years of history. The Vatican City is an independent country that sits in the centre of this vibrant city and is home to the Roman Catholic Church. It is the only existing example of a country within a city.

Our pilgrimages include visits to the most significant and incredible basilicas and churches which have inspired visitors for centuries.

Religious pilgrimages to Duomo Santa Maria Del Fiore, Florence, Italy

Florence

Florence houses some of the greatest works of art to be found in Europe, including Michelangelo’s statue of David and several frescoes. Your pilgrimage will incorporate a guided visit to Florence’s most striking landmark: the Cathedral (or Duomo) and Brunelleschi’s dome on the Duomo which never fails to impress. You’ll also see the awe-inspiring Cupola painting of the Last Judgement by Giorgio Vasari and Federico Zucchari.

Religious Pilgrimages to Assisi, Italy

Assisi

Assisi is a particularly picturesque town boasting much art and fine architecture, offering a peaceful and serene comparison to Rome. Assisi is the birthplace of St Francis, founder of the Franciscan Order and the Patron Saint of Italy. Escape the city and trace his footsteps with a visit to the famous Basilica of St Francis.
