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.

School travel creates memorable moments which empower students by giving them the opportunity to explore different cultures and languages, increasing their confidence and curiosity. I love to help create those experiences for children! – Vanessa Barbosa Tour Consultant

Don't take our word for it …

Halsbury has always organised fantastic trips for us, and our latest visit to Iceland is no different! The trip was packed full of fun and engaging activities for our students! These ranged from whale watching to glacier walks! The communication and organisation with Halsbury make planning the trip so much easier than using other tour operators. They also offer excellent value for money, tailoring the trips to exactly how we would like them! They have the student's best interests at the heart of everything that they do! — Royal Liberty School , October 2023
