Travel in a Smaller Group: Experience More!

Many trips to Rome take place in large groups that are moved around in tour buses. But we travel in a small group, enabling us to walk the beautiful streets of Rome, enter more deeply into prayer and visit many more sites not on the typical tourist itinerary.

Go Deeper in Your Faith

Personal guided tours by Dr. Sri through each site make the churches, saints and art come alive for our faith today.

Stay Two Blocks from the Vatican

Pray at the tombs of the martyrs and saints who shaped our Catholic faith.
