Here you will have the opportunity to see the original David by Michelangelo

There is more!  As with all of our pilgrimages to Italy, you will receive  a top-notch visit of Rome’s treasures!  And as an an added bonus, a request to participate in Pope Francis' Mass of Our Lady of Guadalupe* and receive his apostolic blessing  * (Pending on the Holy Father's household final approval). Remember that a Plenary Indulgence is offered to pilgrims (meeting all the traditional requirements) who visit the 4 Patriarchal Basilicas in Rome as well as the Porziuncula in Assisi!
