This is a perfect tour for those who enjoy traveling on their own but want to join a group & group leader to enjoy the city of Rome with "like minded" people while visiting the open house of this historic temple.


When we heard President Thomas S. Monson of the LDS Church announce the building of the Rome Temple, we got so excited!  Since then and over the years until now we've been busy dreaming up an entire line-up of tours and cruises to the region we could celebrate with the Roman Saints.  We have many in the planning stages and as we get closer to date announcements we will be adding in more definite details.

We love everything Italian and can't wait to share it with you so we can all celebrate this historic dedication of the Rome Temple.  We are continuously monitoring the construction progress and will announce exact tour dates as soon as possible.  But don't wait!  Send us your name and e-mail address NOW and you will be the first to know updates on all of the tour plans.  As an added bonus you can hold your space now with no money down.  These tours will fill quickly, we guarantee it, so don't be left behind!
