Catholic Sites & shrines of Italy: Rome, Assisi,Florence
Italy is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe and, of course, home to many places of interest to Catholics. There is a certain mystique to Italy that beckons people from all over the world to its fertile valleys and bustling yet ancient cities. In addition to the obvious location of Rome, here are just a few of the hundreds of places that are popular. The number of saints that Italy has produced is so numerous that many people have never heard of some of them. And many towns and cities have annual festivals to honor their saints. You could spend a lifetime in Italy and probably not come close to seeing everything the country has to offer.
