11 Days Pilgrimage to Greece

A pilgrimage to Greece in the “Footsteps of St. Paul” will be an experience you will never forget. Christians have been going on pilgrimages from the very beginning of our faith. You will travel in the Journey of St. Paul while viewing some of the most historically significant sites and beautiful places in the world. You can strengthen your faith through visits to the House of the Virgin Mary, Ancient Ephesus and Philippi, where St. Paul established the first church in Europe.

Tours typically include other sites like sites like the Acropolis, the Parthenon and Propylaea as well as visits to the monasteries of Meteora and the beautiful whitewashed towns of Mykonos and Santorini.

On our pilgrimage we offer a complete itinerary that includes round-trip airfare, accommodation in first class hotels, breakfast and dinner daily, all transportation, daily Mass and all under excellent organizing, leadership and teaching from Nativity pilgrimage expert staff and Guides
