Religious or not, we could all use a spiritual getaway. Past visits have included a trek up the Seven Hills of Rome and a stop at the Eternal City’s Aventine keyhole. Other getaways have featured historical landmarks such as the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel, Jewish Rome and the Churches of Trastevere. Perhaps ditch the city altogether for the thermal mineral baths to the north and south, visit the springs of Saturnia or visit the incredible jacuzzis of Ischia, originally formed by underground volcanoes. Or, visit the sacred destination of Assisi - best known as the birthplace of St. Francis of Assisi – patron saint of Italy, founder of the Franciscan order and one the most popular Catholic saints in history.
