Join devotees from all over the world on a pilgrimage to Italy to visit holy sites blessed by its great saints, and enjoy some of the greatest art and architecture ever created.

The pilgrimage will visit Rome, Florence, and Assisi – renowned as the birthplace of St. Francis, whom Paramhansa Yogananda called “his patron saint.” While in Assisi, pilgrims will be hosted by the Ananda Assisi international community, and we will meditate together daily in their beautiful “Temple of Light.”

We will also enjoy guided tours of the great art and architecture in Rome and Florence, birthplace of the Renaissance.
