I just wrapped my latest group pilgrimage, my third since Italy reopened. We spent ten wonderful days traveling through Rome and Umbria. We had zero issues. Here are some of the Masses we had together.
Italy is doing great and I have some opportunities for you to visit.
All Saints and All Souls in Rome
I just had a few people drop out of my October group, so if you can get away next month, this will be a great pilgrimage. We will celebrate All Saints and All Souls in Rome. Nonstop flights on Delta to Rome for those dates right now are under $600 roundtrip. Sign up for the October pilgrimage here.
Advent Pilgrimage to Rome, Assisi, and Florence
If you prefer to visit Rome during the season of preparation, I just announced my Advent Pilgrimage to Rome, Assisi, and Florence. Nonstop flights on Delta to Rome for those dates right now are just $500 roundtrip. Sign up for the Advent Pilgrimage here.
Christmas Pilgrimage to Rome and Assisi
And finally, if you'd like to celebrate the Christmas season in Rome, I just posted my Christmas Pilgrimage to Rome and Assisi. Sign up for Christmas in Italy here.
There's been a lot of talk about Green Pass in Italy. For non-Europeans, Green Pass simply means you've been vaccinated (your proof is your paper vaccination card), or you have recovered in the last 6 months (your proof is a letter from your doctor), or you pass a negative test (your proof is a print out from the pharmacy, valid for 48 hours) – and testing here is simple, no appointment needed, in and out in about 15 minutes.
The Green Pass is required for museums, to eat inside restaurants (no Green Pass to eat outside, and many restaurants have moved their tables outside to avoid asking), and for high speed trains.
Green Pass at the Vatican
You may have heard that the Vatican will require Green Pass starting October 1st. You may not have heard that this does not apply to prayer, only tourists. I wrote about it here.
Hope to see you soon!
