Four Night Tour
Your family will not only experience a guided bike tour of the memorials/monuments and visits to the Smithsonian, National Zoo and the US Capitol, you will also have the unique privilege of visiting these three gems sure to inspire and enlighten:
The Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception
- Affectionately referred to as America’s Catholic Church, this Basilica has been a century in the making. Although its foundation stone was laid in 1920, this great shrine seems to have been conceived of as early as 1846, the year the Bishops of America declared the Blessed Virgin Mary the patroness of the United States under her title of the Immaculate Conception. It is truly the embodiment of the people who are the fabric of the Catholic faith and mosaic of our great nation. To best express its essence is simply to share what St. John Paul II, the first pope to visit the National Shrines, said after his visit: “This Shrine speaks to us with the voice of all America, with the voice of all the sons and daughters of America, who have come here from the various countries…. When they came, they brought with them in their hearts the same love for the Mother of God that was characteristic of their ancestors and of themselves in their native lands. These people, speaking different languages, coming from different backgrounds of history and traditions in their own countries, came together around the heart of a Mother they all had in common.” (October 7, 1979). Explore the expansive Basilica with your family as you reflect on the history it embodies.
St. John Paul II National Shrine
From its conception, the Shrine was intended as a response to St. John Paul II’s call for a “new evangelization”. It is meant to be a place of genuine encounter with God that leads to a renewal of individuals, families, societies and cultures- a place where God, who “entered history” (John Paul II, Homily, Dec. 24, 1999), heals and renews every dimension of life. Cherish the opportunity to venerate a first- class relic of St. John Paul II’s blood with your family and explore the permanent exhibit highlighting the significant events in the life of Pope John Paull II and his momentous influence.
Museum of the Bible
One of the most recent additions to the city, it made its grand opening to the public in November 2017 and aims to be among the most technologically advance and engaging museums in the world. Showcasing rare and fascinating artifacts spanning 4,000 years of history, the museum will offer your family an immersive and personalized experience with the Bible and its ongoing impact on the world around us.
