Tours and More Tours

January 6, 2015

Trip Advisor gives the Cathedral and the Holy Shroud 4 out of 5 stars from 256 reviews.
That should increase dramatically.

SINDONE beigeCatholic Digest has published an undated, brief article about the Shroud. The intent seems to be promote a tour by that publication.

In 2015 the Shroud will be open for viewing from April 19 to June 24. Catholic Digest pilgrims will be there in June for a full-day visit in Turin to view the Shroud. The Shroud is located in the royal chapel of the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist, but the Museum of the Shroud is within walking distance of the Shroud exhibition. This attraction displays artifacts related to the Shroud, including the silver casket previously used to store it.

What else is there to see in Turin?

The Mole Antonelliana is another symbol of the city, completed in 1889, and is an example of some of the most impressive architecture in Turin. Overlooking the city is the Basilica Superga, where the tombs of the royal family Savoy are located. For more information about the 2015 Shroud Exhibition, go to Shroud.com. You can view an interactive image of the Shroud, as well as find answers to frequently asked questions and check out all the latest news about the artifact.

To sign up for Catholic Digest’s The Shroud of Turin and Shrines of Italy Tour June 15-26, 2015, contact Susan Prendergast at 800-842-4842 or susan@select-intl.com.

FYI:  The Catholic Digest tour is June 15–26, 2015, prices start at $4,495.

BTW:  Shroud.com lists many tours HERE.  John and Rebecca Jackson will be leading a tour June 6 to 15. And there will be many others. Try this for starters:  Google:  Shroud of Turin Tours

MORE:  For a wealth of additional information, check on The Holy Shroud Official Website (sindone.org).  You will need to use Google or Bing translation if you don’t know Italian (this is my one remaining big criticism of this otherwise useful site).

FYI 2:  Sindone.org tweeted that there are no reservations available on June 21, the day that the Pope will be visiting the shroud.
