Package Tour Itinerary: Treasures Of The Marians

WELCOME TO ROME
1
WELCOME TO ROME

Upon your arrival at Rome airport, one of our representatives will be waiting for you to welcome you and transfer you comfortably and quickly to your hotel. The rest of the day will be free for you to relax.

Onboard a minibus you will depart from the Piazza della Repubblica, in front of the church of Santa Maria degli Angeli, and you will visit the most special places of Rome, those monumental buildings that will transport you to a dreamlike setting with their illuminated facades.

Throughout the tour you will make different stops starting with the Palatine Hill and the Circus Maximus, where you will marvel at the imperial palaces and have multiple opportunities to capture their beauty with your camera.

The next part of your evening exploration will take you on a just over half an hour walking tour that will lead you to a magnificent standpoint of the Capitoline hill, from where we will enjoy marvelous views of monuments, such as the Marcello Theater, the Venice Square, the Campidoglio or the Roman Forum.

After this stop, you will still have time to make two further stops of about 20 minutes each at Piazza Navona and St. Peter's Square.

During the tour you will also be able to admire many other important monuments and buildings of Rome such as: the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore, the Colosseum, the Forum Boarium or the Castel Sant'Angelo as well as a tour along the river Tiber.

The tour ends at Trastevere, next to the famous Trilussa Square, the ideal area to enjoy the best food in Rome at the best price.

Greca Tip: If you choose not to spend the rest of the night in Trastevere, the driver will take you back to the starting point.

FROM ROME TO LORETO

FROM ROME TO LORETO

After a tasty breakfast, you will head to the Roma Termini train station on our own, where you will start your journey to Ancona.

Upon arrival, after almost 4 hours by train, a private transfer will be waiting for you to take you to your accommodation in Loreto.

After settling in at the hotel, you will have the rest of the day free to begin exploring the city at your own pace. 

The city of Loreto, surrounded by walls built in the 14th century as a defense, especially from Turkish invasions, developed around the basilica that houses the famous relic of the Holy House of Nazareth.

This treasure consists of the stones brought from the House where Our Lady the Virgin Mother of God was born, grew up and in which the Annunciation took place. The house consisted of a room made up of three stone walls that enclosed a cave carved out of the rock.

The grotto is venerated in Nazareth, in the Basilica of the Annunciation, while the three stone walls were transported to Loreto in 1294.

Greca Tip: You can walk around and enjoy the narrow streets decked with attractive buildings, restaurants and shops selling local artisan products.

A DAY IN LORETO

A DAY IN LORETO

After a delicious breakfast you will have free time to visit the town knwon as the "capital of the Marian cult". From the very first moment, visitors can clearly see that Loreto is a venerated town, in fact it is home to one of the most important pilgrimage sites in Italy, protected by ramparts and bastions, dating back to 1500 AD. The sanctuary has its origin in the 13th century (December 10, 1294) with the arrival of the house that was inhabited by the family of the Virgin Mary in Nazareth. The beautiful relic was transported to Italy after the fall of the kingdom of the Crusaders in the Holy Land. 

You can start your day from the large 'Piazza della Madonna' and the impressive Loreto Basilica,. In the center of the square you will find a fountain dating back to the year 600. The square is located at the foot of the Basilica, built between the late Gothic and Renaissance periods. Inside, and under the impressive Dome, you will find the sacred relic, the "santa casa", house of the Virgin Mary, where she received the presence of the Archangel Gabriel. Externally it is protected by a beautiful marble wall designed by Bramante, and with beautiful details. You may also visit the Museum-Pinacoteca, located in the Apostolic Palace, as well as the apses of Piazzale Loreto, enjoying the panoramic view to the Piazzale Gioivanni XXIII. Finally, you can enjoy a leisurely walk along Corso Boccalini, surveying all the goods at display, particularly items from the woodworking and traditional handicrafts, which are one of the strengths of Loreto, as well as articles worked in silver, ceramics and wood of excellent value.

Greca Tip: You can taste traditional products such as “vincisgrassi”, “stuffed olives” and “crescia sfogliata”.
