If you get the chance visit here in the Abruzzi near Rome. Notice the earthquake damage from last year? Each year some 2,000,000 pilgrims visit here.
This is the Sanctuary of St. Gabriel (Santuario di San Gabriele dell'Addolorata), in the shadow of the gorgeous Gran Sasso mountain. No train goes here, but if you have a rental car consider a visit and see the incorrupt body of San Gabriele.
