Jubilee Year, or the Holy Year of Mercy, began in early December 2015 and runs through 2016, as declared by Pope Francis. During the Jubilee, which traditionally occurred every 25 to 50 years, the faithful could be forgiven of all their sins by completing a series of tasks as determined by the pope. Visiting Rome during a Jubilee Year makes for a celebratory occasion, with a host of special events and happenings as pilgrims from all over the world make their way to the city — so it’s a good idea to book tours and accommodations in advance.
