Rome & Italy

Rome & Italy


A pilgrimage to Vatican City in Rome, the Holy City, is a lifetime dream of most devout Catholics who wish to venerate at the Basilica of Saint Peter, stand at the world-famous plaza of St. Peter, catch a glimpse of the famous Swiss Guards in their Renaissance-era uniforms, and perhaps – just maybe, a glimpse of the His Holiness the Pope as well.  A near-endless supply of basilicas, churches and museums will keep any faithful Catholic and lover of history, art and architecture enraptured.   Other cities to visit on any pilgrimage to Rome include Assisi, birthplace of Saint Francis, the Benedictine Abbey of Monte Cassino, Florence, and Venice.
