Airfare Requirements

Airfare can be booked independently by you or invoiced through SacredWay Pilgrimages. Jon and his team are prepared to help you arrive in Rome without issue and are happy to help you book your airfare. If you are reserving your own airfare, please note you need to make sure the plane arrives at Fiumicino (FCO) on Oct. 8th, between the hours of 7-9:30am local time. Jon and his tour manager Marika are there to greet everyone

upon arrival and are with you the entire way.

What do I do when my flight lands?

Upon landing and disembarking from your flight, your next steps are to go through immigration followed by heading to the baggage claim area. Keep an eye on the display monitors above the conveyor belts to locate the one assigned to your flight – it will show your flight number. After retrieving your bags, proceed through customs to exit the baggage claim and enter the arrivals hall. Here you will find Jon, Fr. Scott, and Marika to greet you and give you direction.

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.


Should I insure my trip?

YES! We offer plans through Middendorf Insurance to fully insure your pilgrimage. To fully insure your pilgrimage, please call or email Trent at (515)-252-1414 or


SacredWay Pilgrimages necessitates the capability to walk a daily distance of 3-4 miles. This estimate includes walks from the bus drop-off points to the various locations, as well as the walking involved at the sites, churches, and museums included in your tour. We strive to have the buses drop you off at the nearest possible locations. If you believe this level of walking might be challenging for you, we advise considering bringing along a companion to assist you.


Italy is characterized by an abundance of historic structures, cobblestone streets, and varied levels of terrain. The design of these ancient buildings often makes them less accessible for wheelchair users,

frequently necessitating the use of stairs.
