Trip Patron

Our trip patron is St. James the Greater. Following the Descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, St. James set out for Spain where he preached the good new. Following his missionary work in Spain, St. James returned to his home country and was eventually beheaded in Jerusalem, in 44 AD. His relics were returned to Spain but his head remained in Jerusalem, in the church of St. James. We’ll pay our patron a visit while in Jerusalem!

“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives to all men generously and without reproaching, and it will be given him.

Richard Thomes

We have been to Europe nine times and this was by far the best trip we have taken. The trip had an excellent agenda and every place we stopped was exciting. The guides were full of knowledge and spoke excellent English. After 10 days we were not ready to come back home. We would love to tour with ProRome again.

Kathy Brydon

I recently enjoyed a pilgrimage with ProRome to Rome and southern Italy. The passionate enthusiasm of our guide, Joe Long, gave this trip a great deal of added enjoyment. Mr. Long was extremely knowledgeable about the sites that we visited. I was also impressed by his sincere concern for the individuals on his trip, making sure that those with special needs, especially dietary, we cared for. His attention to detail made our excursions run smoothly. The accommodations were excellent. I am looking forward to other trips with this company.

Lita Hess

We had the trip of a lifetime to Italy. It was as perfect as humanly possible. Joe tried to meet any needs that arose with individuals, his planning made it so we could see and learn as much as possible in the time we had. I was extremely happy with our accommodations. I have a hard time calling it a pilgrimage because I had so much fun along the way. The restaurant choices were great too. Thanks so much!

Protecting You, and Your Loved Ones

Protect Your Travel Investment, and Plan Worry Free

Most of our clients who purchase travel insurance will never have to file a claim. This is a very good thing. If you do have to visit a hospital over in Europe, however, it is good to know that you have the world’s largest and best travel insurance provider at your back. They’ll get you in and taken care of quickly.

On another note, the majority of those who cancel their trip with ProRome do so because of an illness or death in their family prior to the trip. This is covered in most of our plans. If nothing else, this is a very good reason to purchase a plan today.
