Breathe Catholic in the Heart of the Church.
In addition to taking full advantage of the artistic, cultural, ecclesiastical, and spiritual riches and resources of the Eternal City, the program includes visits to Siena, Florence, and a retreat in Assisi. Students may also participate in optional trips to sacred cities such as Orvieto and Subiaco.
Classes are held at the Istituto Maria SS Bambina, a convent located near the hotel, and situated directly next to St. Peter's. The students can listen to the weekly Wednesday Papal audience from their balcony that overlooks St. Peter's Square.
