Itinerary

Meet the tour leader at 16:00 hrs for check-in on your Air Malta flight to Lourdes departing at 17:50 hrs. Upon arrival, your private coach will take you to your centrally located 3* Hotel Angelic for check in and room allocation. Soon afterwards you can join your tour leader for a short orientation walk before overnight.

Today, after breakfast, join the tour leader and other fellow group members to visit the Grotto and some of the famous attractions within Lourdes. You make take the time to visit the sacred baths, visit the Basilicas and maybe take part in the Via Sagra. Later head back to your hotel for lunch before re-join the group for an optional half day excursion to Pont d’Espagne. At an altitude of 1500m, this gateway to the Pyrenees National Park, Pont d’Espagne is amongst the most prices sites of such a park. A marked path will take you to a footbridge where you can admire the famous bridge arched above the gorges where foaming torrents flow. You may also then take the Gaube chair lift (extra) that will take you quietly to the lake above. Return to Lourdes in time for dinner and overnight.

After breakfast, join thousands of other pilgrims and your spiritual director for the concelebration of Massa at the underground Basilica of Saint Pius X. After lunch, join the tour leader for an optional excursion to Gavarnie. The Cirque du Gavarnie is one of only a handful of sites around the World that are listed on the UNESCO World Heritage Sites for both its natural and cultural attributes. Return to your hotel in Lourdes in time for dinner and overnight.

After breakfast and checkout, join the tour leader for a full day excursion to Toulouse. Ochre rooftops and blushing brick churches earned Toulouse the nickname ‘La Ville Rose’ (the pink city). Roam around this dreamy jumble of coral-coloured shopfronts and churches. This fourth largest French city is home to one of the largest universities outside Paris and to the sprawling aeronautical industry. Enjoy your free time by wondering though the salons de thé or by shopping in one of the many shopping outlets that dot the city. Return to your hotel in Lourdes in time for your transfer back to Lourdes airport for your flight back to Malta departing at 21:00 hrs.
