Departure by Airmalta flight KMO 612 to Rome at 07.30am. Group must be at the airport at 5am. On our arrival in Rome we set off for the centre of this magnificent capital city allowing us to stop in strategic places where we may have the opportunity to admire on foot certain Tourist attractions. This is the best comfortable way to visit this busy Capital City. The coach travels along with us and picks us up where we are are given permission. There will also be some time for a hasty snack or pizza . Rome is best admired on foot but , being so huge we are being guided to do it moving around on coach as well , so as not to tire ourselves out. On the fixed time given by Tour Leader we proceed to our comfortable Hotel in Rivotorto near Assisi. We take our rooms and then we meet for our delicious dinner.

A mouth- watering dinner awaits us at our very comfortable Hotel in the evening

Today after our buffet breakfast we set out for the wonderful Cascia which immediately brings to our mind THE GREAT Santa Rita that has always inspired great DEVOTION. Visiting her Basilica ( time to hear Mass as well) and then proceeding to Roccaporena her birthplace will be like living a fairy Tale. The vast rocky pyramid that dominates the village of Roccaporena has been called “The Sacred Rock”. Thousands come here to venerate Lo Scoglio di Santa Rita.
