WOODCLIFF LAKE, New Jersey – Guests can look into the eyes of Pope Francis during Perillo Tours’ new eight-day tour of Rome and Vatican City. The tour operator released the Rome Jubilee Tour in honor of Pope Francis’ declaration of 2016 as the “Holy Year of Mercy.”
Semi-private tours of the Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel allow participants to stay away from the overwhelming crowds for a more intimate experience. Other highlights include visits to breathtaking basilicas, chapels, papal residences and gardens.
Guests will also dine on Roman Jewish cooking in Rome’s historic Jewish Ghetto, walk into the Roman catacombs, and sample famous local wine at the Fontana Condida Restaurant and Winery.
Pope Francis named the 2016 Jubilee as a “Holy Year of Mercy,” to create a focus on remission of sins and universal pardon.
