Religious travels in Italy May 4, 2008
A very good guide if you are going to Italy, and want to venerate the Italian saints during your holiday.
Great book! Jan 13, 2008
I just purchased this book and already I'm using it to plan our next trip. The information on how to find the pilgrimage sites, hours, lodging, etc, are thorough and helpful. But more than that, I really enjoy the information on the lives of the saints. If you can't make it to Italy, you can use the book to make a pilgrimage at home by finding a quiet spot and journeying with these saints toward a stronger faith in God. I highly recommend this book.
Life-changing trip to Italy Aug 29, 2007
In 2004 I took a trip to Italy. My intent was to seek out places of high spiritual vibration (due to the historical presence of saints) and to meditate in those places. The Pilgrim's Italy was invaluable in carrying out this vision. Many of the places I visited were off the beaten track and accessible and authentic beyond my imaginings (especially the hermitages associated with St. Francis, about an hour outside Rome). My spiritual life was transformed by my meditations in Italy, and I am forever grateful to the authors for their informative guidance.
Great Resource for Inspiration and fun Jul 19, 2007
We traveled for a month in Italy and it was wonderful to have this book at our side. Suddenly we would find ourselves in a new area and look up the region in the book, only to find yet another saint we might visit! It is said that you can't hardly throw a rock and not hit a saint in Italy, so one could not possibly expect the book to contain them all. But it is wonderfully researched and leads you to even some back and sleepy places in search of inspiration. I remember taking a side journey on the Amalfi coast in search of one of the saints, which resulted in a most spectacular diversion to our otherwise calculated plans, a wonderful surprise worth finding. I recommend the book if you are interested in finding even some of the magnificent inspiration available in Italy.
EXPERIENCING ITALY THROUGH THE SAINTS Jul 8, 2007
We just spent 3 weeks in the Assisi area of Italy in May 2007. The book, The Pilgrim's Italy:A Travel Guide to the Saints was invaluable. It quided us to places where we could meditate and pray and go very deep into the vibrations of the saints. It also educated us on the lives of the saints in that area. We felt it gave us an experience that most people are unaware of when traveling to such holy places. Because we read the book prior to the trip and took it with us, we had expections that we could actually experience the presence of the saints and we did. Our expcetations were fulfilled more than we could have imagined. This book is a must for anyone who wants to have a spiritual experince of Italy.
