   BY AIR     3- 4 STARS

Our 8 day tour is packed with religious and cultural sightseeing, making the most of your stay.

One of the greatest highlights of the pilgrimage is to attend the Papal General Audience in St Peter’s Square). We visit St Peter’s Basilica, one of the holiest sites in Christendom, the Colosseum, once the scene of many bloody gladiatorial contests, and the beautiful ornate Trevi Fountain, throw in a coin and you are ensured a return to Rome.  We also include the Pantheon and the lively Piazza Navona which has long been a meeting place for the locals of Rome.

We take a full day out to the ancient Catacombs, an underground burial site most famous for Christian burials and the Scala Sancta, the Holy Stairs which are believed to have been brought from Jerusalem to Rome. Visit the  four Major Basilicas of St John Lateran, dedicated to the Virgin Mary, St Peters and  the Basilica of St Paul outside the walls. Conclude your pilgrimage with a visit to the world-famous Sistine Chapel located inside the Vatican, one of the greatest religious and art treasures of all time, and the Vatican Museum most notable for its Papal history and amazing art treasures.
