On our recommended 11 day programme, we encounter some of the great saints who have shaped Western Christianity. We begin with five nights in Rome where guided tours focus on the ancient empire, the Vatican City and the lives of St Peter and St Paul, with the opportunity to attend the weekly Papal Audience in St. Peter’s Square. A highlight is a drive around floodlit Rome stopping at the Trevi fountain and dining in a traditional trattoria with wandering minstrels.
We then drive north into Umbria visiting en route the spectacular hill-top town of Orvieto. Our base for the second five nights is the small town of Citta de Castello, ideally situated for our touring programme. From our Umbrian base we take day excursions to explore the Assisi of St Francis, Siena, San Gimignano and Florence and have one day just enjoying the countryside.
A one week programme is also available featuring five nights in Rome and two nights in Assisi.
