We strongly recommend that travelers book tickets and guided tours in advance, especially for the ever popular Vatican Museums and the Colosseum, which are sure to sell out.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 20, 2014
Thousands of devotees are expected in Rome on October 19 for the Beatification of Pope Paul VI. Select Italy (http://selectitaly.com), the web-based travel company which boasts one of the most complete online portfolios of museum, opera tickets and guided tours, is offering Vatican and Rome special services to enhance the experience of the travelers that will be in Rome to attend the ceremony.
The upcoming Beatification of Pope Paul VI is an important event for the Vatican and the Catholic community. The ceremony will take place on October 19th, 2014 in St. Peter’s Square at the conclusion of the III Extraordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops and will be celebrated by Pope Francis. Beatification is the declaration that a deceased person lived a holy life and can vouch for those who pray in his name. The candidate must be also credited with a miracle and the reported one that set Pope Paul VI's beatification in motion involves the miraculous healthy birth of a doomed mother with child in California in 1993.
Select Italy offers a wide range of experiences to maximize the stay of those who will be in Rome to attend the event. Travelers can choose between private and group tours, such as the 4-hour small group tour of the Vatican & St. Peter's Basilica or book Select Italy’s skip the line tickets for the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel. Outside the Vatican City walls there are many other activities and sites to visit, such as the Colosseum, the Borghese Gallery and Ostia Antica ruins, to name but a few.
“Faithful who attend the upcoming Beatification should make sure to include the best sites that Rome has to offer in their trip,” says Justin Anderson, Manager of Operations & Client Services. “We strongly recommend that travelers book tickets and guided tours in advance, especially for the ever popular Vatican Museums and the Colosseum, which are sure to sell out. Travelers might also consider services outside the most popular sites, like a food tour in Trastevere, or a guided tour and concert by Rome Opera Omnia at the atmospheric Church of Santa Maria Immacolata."
