Tourism in Italy is fully open and this beautiful country is waiting to be enjoyed. Below you will find some answers to our most frequently asked questions. If you have any other questions regarding travel, please do not hesitate to email Jon at or call Jimmy Coppinger at 800.653.0017 ex. 1006.

Are there COVID Requirements to enter Italy?

Italy is open and there are no COVID requirements to enter the Country.

Are face coverings required in Italy?

Face coverings are optional, but not required in indoor public settings.

What if I am traveling from a city outside of Des Moines?

Most of the pilgrims who journey with us are traveling from cities all around the country. In fact, one of the things Jon hears the most is how great it was meeting people all across the United States. If this is you, you will simply choose the LAND ONLY option on the pilgrimage registration, and our friends at Canterbury will help you all along the way in booking your airfare. Jon and his tour manager Marika are there to greet everyone upon arrival and are with you the entire way.

Will there be a priest on the pilgrimage with us?

YES! A priest is with us the entire pilgrimage, and daily Mass and opportunities for confession are offered in some of the most inspiring places throughout the pilgrimage.

What happens to my payments toward the trip in the case of postponement?

If you need to cancel your pilgrimage before the set cancellation date, any refundable payments paid toward the trip may be refunded subject to a $200 security fee as part of each deposit.


Should I insure my trip?

YES! We offer two plans through Allianz Travel Insurance. Both the Classic Plan and the Classic Plan with Cancel Anytime cover you at 100% of your trip cost for any provable medical reasons that render you unable to take or continue your trip. Please call Canterbury at (800) 653-0017 for more information.

Jon looks forward to welcoming you to yet another amazing adventure!
