Explore Roman Catholicism on a religious studies school trip to Rome!
We can arrange for your students to attend a General Audience with the Pope, subject to schedule. And you can stay in a fully refurbished and completely modernised 13th century Cistercian monastery. With churches on almost every corner and countless remarkable ancient and renaissance buildings, your group will soak up a wealth of religious heritage of a fascinating city that has been at the heart of Christianity for nearly 2,000 years.
You could also choose to make your school trip to Rome cross-curricular, thanks to the fantastic opportunities the city also offers for Italian, art and classical studies.
