A Pilgrimage to

The Holy Land

November 10 – 20, 2022 / $4590.00

On this trip we will visit the many incredible sites throughout the Holy Land. The itinerary features five nights in Jerusalem, three nights in Tiberias and one night in Tel Aviv, with multiple excursions to many different sites along the way.

Our chaplain Father Langan will lead us in daily Mass and prayer, and our Christian tour guides will share with us their love and knowledge of the holy places. From Bethlehem to Bethany, Nazareth to Jerusalem, our Faith will come to life as we walk in Christ’s very footsteps.

This trip has been designed to be as comfortable as possible. We’ve arranged round-trip direct airfare from New York, beautiful four and five star hotels, and private transportation and tour services.

Trip Patron

Our trip patron is St. James the Greater. Following the Descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, St. James set out for Spain where he preached the good new. Following his missionary work in Spain, St. James returned to his home country and was eventually beheaded in Jerusalem, in 44 AD. His relics were returned to Spain but his head remained in Jerusalem, in the church of St. James. We’ll pay our patron a visit while in Jerusalem!

“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives to all men generously and without reproaching, and it will be given him.

Travel Insurance

Protecting You, and Your Loved Ones

Protect Your Travel Investment, and Plan Worry Free

Most of our clients who purchase travel insurance will never have to file a claim. This is a very good thing. If you do have to visit a hospital over in Europe, however, it is good to know that you have the world’s largest and best travel insurance provider at your back. They’ll get you in and taken care of quickly.

On another note, the majority of those who cancel their trip with ProRome do so because of an illness or death in their family prior to the trip. This is covered in most of our plans. If nothing else, this is a very good reason to purchase a plan today.
