The heart of Italy
From Rome to Assisi
Stops along the way include Monte La Verna, another important Franciscan Sanctuary, and Gubbio Cascia and Roccaporena, little villages in the Umbria region.
From West to East
To stay close to Rome, you can go a short distance outside the city to visit the monastery of Montecassino.
We then continue south to Napoli and further still to San Giovanni Rotondo, in the Puglia region, where the remains of Padre Pio are preserved. Eventually we return northwards to Lanciano, the town of the Eucharistic miracle.
From south to north, on the east coast
On the east coast, we travel from San Giovanni Rotondo in the south to Lanciano, stopping by Manoppello to admire the Manoppello Image. We then move north to Loreto, where the relic of Mary’s house in Nazareth is preserved. Finally we arrive in Padua, to honor St. Anthony.
Tour from North to the center
All roads lead to Rome, but this tour starts from the city of Turin and explores towns with religious sites dedicated to important saints: Colle Don Bosco, home of Don Bosco, Cascia, devoted to Saint Rita, and Montichiari, with the mystical rose of Fontanelle. Then we arrive in Padua to celebrate St. Anthony and then head to Assisi for St. Francis.
When in Italy, you must visit its most important and fundamental religious sites. From Ravenna, the city of the mosaics, to Florence, with its medieval & renaissance domes and cloisters. Passing through Assisi, to pay a visit to the places of St. Francis, we then end the journey in Rome.
