While Rome is often the focus on many Catholic Pilgrimage visits to Italy, there are countless sites throughout Italy associated with the lives of the saints, both ancient and modern. From the martyrdom of Saint Peter in Rome in the first century, Rome has remained the center of Catholicism throughout the world.
While most Catholic pilgrimage to Italy would feel incomplete without a stop in Rome, Italy has so much more to offer. A short distance to the north, pilgrims can find themselves walking in the footsteps of St. Francis as they traverse the hills of Assisi. A trip to the south will take you to Monte Cassino and the home of St. Benedict. You may choose to visit the sites of St. Catherine of Siena, or for a modern view of the lives of the saint, travel to San Giovanni Rotondo to learn about the life of Padre Pio.
