We will fly into Rome and linger in that historic city for 3 days before traveling to Assisi, which will be our “home base” for the pilgrimage. This will not be a group tour, but a spiritual retreat on-the-move — limited to 24 participants. The pilgrimage will include contemplative silence, small group reflection, and group learning about from the best tour guides in the region.
