5-9 APRIL 2016


After our successful tours in the past to Rome and San Giovanni, we are pleased to have arranged another tour to a major shrine in Italy – visiting the shrines associated with St Anthony.


An ancient walled city situated between Verona and Venice, Padua is the oldest city in Northern Italy. It is a beautiful old university town with an illustrious past.


Pilgrims come here from all over the world to venerate St. Anthony, the Franciscan hermit who was born in Lisbon but died in Padua, and to visit the magnificent Basilica that holds his tomb and relics.


The details of the trip are given below. All bookings can be done through the parish office or by contacting Joe Walsh Tours directly on 01-241 0800. Louise is our contact there.


As places are limited, early booking is advised with a deposit of €200. Fr Michael is arranging this tour along with our previous tour guides Mario and Una who always ensure we get to see the best places of interest.
