Shrines of Italy - Faith-Based Travel

This affordable journey through Catholic heritage in Italy allows you to witness the most visited shrines of the country, from north to south. Discover the inspiring Catholic Italian icons of northern Italy: From Milan’s St Ambrogio to Turin’s Don Bosco and Padua’s St Anthony, you’ll collect memories and inspiration that will remain with you for life. Admire in awe the early Christian works of art of the Byzantine era in Ravenna, and finally spend two full days in Rome, dedicating your attention to the Papal legacies and visiting many inspiring places of worship instilling a sense of solemnity and serenity. From here, your spiritual experience continues to the places of St Pio, Petrelcina and San Giovanni Rotondo, and to the Sanctuaries of Loreto and Lanciano. You’ll also feel the magic atmosphere of Assisi, home to Saint Francis, immersed in the enchanting hills of Umbria. Attend Mass in Milan’s Basilica and travel to Turin—home of the Holy Shroud Museum, and conclude your journey with the opportunity to attend the Papal Audience in Rome if possible. Our comprehensive and affordable Italian vacation takes you to the religious shrines of northern Italy. Follow in the footsteps of saints and stand near the sites of miracles.
