About this trip

Embark on a sacred Biblical pilgrimage, retracing the footsteps of the Apostle Paul across the ancient lands of Greece and Italy. This transformative journey begins in Thessaloniki, where you'll explore Philippi and Kavala, sites steeped in Biblical significance, before immersing yourself in the rich history of Thessaloniki itself. As you stand in awe before the Meteora Monasteries and traverse the storied streets of Athens, the enduring legacy of faith comes to life before your eyes.


In Rome, the heart of Catholicism, your pilgrimage reaches its pinnacle. From the solemn halls of Mamertine Prison to the hallowed grounds of St. Peter's Basilica, each site offers a profound connection to the martyrdom of the Apostle Paul and the early Christian community. As you attend a Papal Audience and cross the Holy Door, you'll experience moments of profound spiritual reflection, deepening your bond with the Church and its rich traditions.


Throughout your journey, Masses at revered sites such as the Bema of Apostle Paul in Berea and the Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls provide moments of spiritual renewal and communion with the faithful. Join us on this sacred odyssey, where faith, history, and tradition converge to illuminate the path of discipleship and grace.

Reviews

We had a great time, the trip was very well organized. After we left the group and went tp Jordan and Egypt, we were anxious about being able to contact the tour agency that would show us the rest of the tour. We were always contacted by the travel agent representative that would take us to our hotel and guide us in all the day trips. The only glitch was that the agent in Jorden did not know anything about providing us lunch which was susposed to be part of each days tours.. We did get a lunch provided in Cairo but when we went to Aswan there was never an offer of lunch. We really enjoyed the trip but got very tired toward the end of the trip. We would recommend the trip extention to Jorden and Egypt but it would have been helpful to have more information ahead of time about how the extended trip would work.

We had a wonderful trip. We were able to see almost all of the sites on the itinerary, and the one or two that we weren't able to, was due to weather or the Ramadan holiday. The accommodations were superb, as was the food. And the tour guide and bus driver were superb, providing great information on Israel's history, culture, and geography, and keeping us safe on the road. The only complaint I have about the trip, was the too-quick connection in Paris between flights. We had to walk a ways from one gate to the other, and had to go through security, which we didn't expect. We did make the connection, but it was stressful.

Our time in Israel was a great experience! Our tour guide was knowledgeable and very accommodating, it was like he was family! Our bus driver was awesome too! We were saddened about not being able to go to the Temple Mount but Mickey our tour guide made accommodations to visit other sites. Thank you so much for organizing this trip to the Holy Land!
