Catholic Radio & Television Host Pilgrimage Leader to Rome & The Vatican for over 10 Years
"This book is at the top of my list as one of the most comprehensive Catholic travel guides to Rome. I especially love the stunning images, interesting facts about the saints and our Catholic faith, as well as all of the travel tips included in this book. I am taking this book with me on all 4 of my pilgrimages to Rome this year."

From the Author
Most tourists are fascinated by the brutal imperial history of Rome, or the artistic beauty of Renaissance Rome. But they and their guides often miss a more important story. Even before Rome destroyed Jerusalem's Temple in 70 AD, Saints Peter and Paul had arrived there, spreading the Gospel and establishing the foundation of Christ's Church. Because of their sacrifices, and those of countless other martyrs, our Christian heritage was nurtured and preserved in Rome. So, over the past twenty centuries, the Church has had to struggle through seemingly endless persecutions, fires, martyrdoms, earthquakes, plunders, and heresies. But by the grace of God, and the heroic virtue of saints, the Church has always prevailed. Today, for anyone who wishes to fully appreciate Christian history, the Eternal City is more than an interesting tourist destination. Rome is a holy, historic pilgrimage.

Even reading the tips for travelers gives me a glimpse into the culture—from dress codes and local idiosyncrasies to warnings of broken sidewalks. This book is unique for all it entails and is far, far more than just a book for travelers. It would make history, religion, art, and geography classes come alive. The book closes with a Scriptural and historical guide on the establishment of the Papacy and the Catholic Church—yes, even apologetics too.
