Turin, April 16 - A tourist itinerary following in
the footsteps of Pope Francis' Italian family will take pilgrims
and travellers through Piedmont locations where the Bergoglio
family originates.
The 'Strada del Papa' or 'Road of the Pope' offers package
tours lasting four to eight days with visits to the farms,
churches, fields and hills 'of Pope Francis', including the
hilltop village of Asti, the birthplace of the pontiff's
grandfather.
The tours are coordinated by the bureau of tourism for the
town of Asti and are part of a broader itinerary celebrating the
200-year birthday anniversary of 19th-century Catholic
educational and social reformer St John Bosco, known as Don
Bosco, who was born August 16, 1815 in Castelnuovo d'Asti.
Seven towns will participate - Asti, Portacomaro,
Castelnuovo Don Bosco, Celle Enomondo, Moriondo, San Martino
Alfieri and Castell'Alfero.
