13 Days Pilgrimage to The Holy Land & Greece

A pilgrimage to the Holy Land and Greece will be an experience you will never forget. Christians have been going on pilgrimages from the very beginning of our faith. Early Christians visited the birth place Jesus and other sites documented in the Gospels. The Holy Land holds importance as the place of Jesus’ birth, life, death and resurrection.

Our Catholic tours to Greece in the “Footsteps of St. Paul” are unlike any other that you will find. You will travel in the Journey of St. Paul while viewing some of the most historically significant sites and beautiful places in the world.

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.
