This 6 nights pilgrimage to Italy takes pilgrims to Pietrelcina, San Giovanni Rotondo, and Assisi on a spiritual journey following in the footsteps of Saint Padre Pio and Saint Francis of Assisi.
We’ll start our pilgrimage in San Giovanni Rotondo, in the region of Puglia, where we will learn about the life and work of Saint Padre Pio, visiting his hometown, the places where he lived, his resting place, and other important religious sites.
Also in the region, we will visit the shrine cave of the Archangel Michael in Monte Sant’Angelo, a destination for pilgrims since the Archangel appeared in the 5th century and a place of devotion that has attracted many Saints and Popes over the centuries.
From Puglia we will travel inland to Umbria to explore the magnificent art and history of Assisi, the homeplace of Saint Francis. We will enjoy a walking tour of Assisi visiting the main sights of this wonderful medieval city including the Basilica of Saint Francis, the Basilica of Saint Clare and the Basilica of Saint Mary of the Angels where we will get to see the Porziuncola, the small chapel built by Saint Francis where he lived and where he started the Franciscan Order.
