Now for something totally different and shamelessly self-promoting. I was actually given an invitation to blog about this, so I’m not being totally shameless.
Having lived in Rome, Italy for two years and marrying a man who spent nearly a decade traipsing around the European continent, I have some experience in these matters. There are pilgrimage companies, and then there are pilgrimage companies. Likewise, there are tour guides (especially in the Vatican) and there are tour guides.
Orbis Catholicus Travel is one of those tour companies offering small group pilgrimages to Italy, the Holy Land, Mexico, (even Cuba – in January 2016) and France that really knows a thing or two about authentic pilgrimages, and excellent tour guiding.
We keep groups small and intimate, we stay right in the heart of the action, and we make sure that groups get to know an area intimately, with regard to the art, history, culinary traditions and religion. And we don’t do the marathon tours of spending 14 nights in 14 different cities – watch out!
We know our guides. Tour guides can make or break a tour. Ours happen to be our good friends with whom we prayed, ate, lived and celebrated Rome.
There is so much more I could say on the subject, but suffice it to say, your time and resources would be well spent. So I encourage you to visit Orbis Catholicus Travel to learn more about our upcoming tours.
