YEAR OF MERCY PILGRIMAGE TO ROME
Pallottine Rome Pilgrimage
(In the footsteps of St Vincent Pallotti)
Wednesday April 27TH to Monday May 2nd 2016.
We will be staying with the Casa Procura of the Pallottine Missionary Sisters, Viale delle Mura Aurelie, 7/B in Rome; their guest house is a stone’s throw from St. Peter’s Basilica.
All Rooms are en-suite
The cost per night Bed and Breakfast is as follows:
Triple Rooms @ €105 (i.e. €35 per person sharing)
Double Rooms @ €84 (i.e. €42 per person sharing)
Single Rooms @ €52.
- Everyone will have to book their own Flights and Travel Insurance Cover (it is vital that you take out Travel Insurance). Aer Lingus and Ryanair offer daily flights to Rome. At the moment the Aer Lingus flight departs Dublin Airport at 06.30 and flies in to Fiumicino Airport, the Ryanair flight departs Dublin Airport at 06.30 and flies in to Ciampino Airport. We will look at arranging transport (bus/mini-bus/taxi, depending on numbers) from the airports to the guest house when we have the definite list of pilgrims.
- The guest house is simple and it is on a hill, those who stay there would need to be reasonably agile as there is no bus service up that road.
- As the Sisters only do Bed and Breakfast the Pilgrims will have to look after their own lunch and evening meal.
- The guest house has a chapel and daily Mass will be celebrated for our group.

The rooms will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis, so people interested in going will need to get back to me with their details and who they would like to share with. If you wish you can also post the details to me.
