The Camino, a Walking Journey for the Soul

Vacation Overview


           Join us for this inspiring walking pilgrimage covering the last section of  the French St James Way from Sarria to Santiago de Compostela. Since the 9th Century, pilgrims have walked to Santiago de Compostela to have their sins forgiven and to worship the relics of the Apostle James in the Cathedral built above his tomb. The Camino de Santiago (Way of St. James) is considered a spiritual journey covering approximately 115 kilometers (72 miles) on foot in over the course of 6 days, with a local expert guide, hotel stays, and train transfers from Madrid to Sarria and from Santiago de Compostela to Madrid.

Shrines of Italy

Vacation Overview


           This affordable journey through Catholic heritage in Italy allows you to witness the most visited shrines of the country, from north to south. Discover the inspiring Catholic Italian icons of northern Italy: from Milan’s St. Ambrose to Turin’s St. John Bosco and Padua’s St. Anthony, you’ll collect memories and inspiration that will remain with you for life. Admire in awe the early Christian works of art of the Byzantine era in Ravenna, and finally spend two full days in Rome, dedicating your attention to the Papal legacies and visiting many inspiring places of worship instilling a sense of solemnity and serenity.
