Explore San Giovanni Rotondo, an important Catholic pilgrimage centre where Saint Padre Pío spent much his life. Discover the town's iconic churches on this private English-language tour.
Private Tour of San Giovanni Rotondo
On the day of your tour, meet your guide at the scheduled time in front of the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, one of the oldest and most important Catholic temples in the Italian city of San Giovanni Rotondo, having been originally built in the 16th century.
Inside, you'll learn all about the history of the sanctuary while admiring its striking artwork. Discover who Francesco Forgione was - better known as Padre Pío or San Pío de Pietrelcina - and his link to San Giovanni Rotondo. You'll then visit the chapel where the saint's body lies.
After bearing witness to Padre Pío's mortal remains, you'll next have the opportunity to explore the convent where he lived, seeing the room in which he worked and prayed.
The last stop on your private tour of San Giovanni Rotondo will be the Padre Pío Pilgrimage Church, a contemporary church built in 2004 by the architect Renzo Piano, and funded almost entirely by offerings from the venerated saint's devotees.
After admiring its impressive interior, your private tour of San Giovanni Rotondo will come to an end.
