Always dreamed of seeing Rome and the Vatican? Well you might be in luck, if you have $6,695 handy.
The Minnesota and North Dakota Chapter of the Patrons of the Arts in the Vatican Museums (PAVM) is taking a group to Rome and the Amalfi coast in honor of its 10th anniversary of supporting the protection, restoration and preservation of the art and artifact collections of the Vatican museums.
The trip, scheduled for April 25 - May 6, is the interfaith non-profit group’s 10th visit to Rome and the Vatican.
Johan van Parys, chair of the PAVM local chapter, said the group will have private and exclusive viewings of the Vatican art museums and dine in the room with the Caravaggio painting. And the group will also be provided with priority seating at the Papal Audience, among other highlights.
“We are delighted to have this wonderful chance to see the magnificent sites just south of Naples, including Positano, Ravello, Amalfi and Capri. The Amalfi experience will culminate with a private reception at the Villa della Madonnina which is precariously perched on the rocks high above the Mediterranean Sea.”
The package is priced at $6,695, and to purchase trip tickets and for more information about public events scheduled, visit www.vaticanartpatrons.org.
