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.

We had an absolutely fantastic trip to Barcelona - all the pupils loved it! We saw so much in the 3 days we were there, and Halsbury made the whole process much easier to manage. It was my first time planning a trip but with their support everything ran smoothly. I would definitely go back and am already thinking about next year's trip. — St Wilfrid's RC College, July 2019
