 Day 2: Orvieto and Assisi
We start off our day in the hilltop town of Orvieto, where history hangs over the cobbles streets, beautiful piazzas and impressive churches. Orvieto’s top sight and one of the most extraordinary examples of Italian Gothic architecture, is the striking Cathedral with its magnificent exterior mosaic decorations. Its history is strongly connected to Eucharistic miracle and the Blood Stained Stones. We then travel to Assisi, birthplace of St. Francis of Assisi whose spirit can be felt in this saintly place. Inside the spectacular Basilica of St. Francis, we will see his tomb and admire the frescoes by famous artists such as Giotto and Cimabue. We also visit the Church that honors St. Clare, the foundress of the Poor Clare Sisters.

Day 3: Assisi, Macerata and Loreto
We make our way to the Basilica of St. Mary of the Angels with its beautiful rose garden, the Porziuncola, a tiny church where St. Francis founded his order (Franciscans), and the Capella del Transito, which is the place of his death. We then depart for Loreto with a stop in Macerata to enter the Shrine of Our Lady of Mercy, where an Eucharistic miracle happened in the 14th century: a priest torn by the doubt that Christ was really present in the Eucharist, saw the host bleed in the chalice.

Day 4: Loreto - Lanciano - San Giovanni Rotondo
Loreto is one of the most important pilgrimage sites in Italy. Tradition says that angels moved here the house that had been the Holy Family’s home in Nazareth. We will have the opportunity to pray in the Sanctuary of the Holy House. We then travel to Lanciano where the host turned into flesh and the wine into blood. In the afternoon we will reach San Giovanni Rotondo, home of Padre Pio.
