Rome Religious Studies

Prices from: £239

The capital of Italy, Rome, is a vibrant cosmopolitan city which has been at the centre of the Roman Catholic faith for over two millennia. It attracts millions of tourists each year and is often regarded as the world's most beautiful ancient city.

As Rome is home to Vatican City, the headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church, as well as other iconic religious sights, it is the perfect destination for students studying religion to gain a greater understanding of beliefs, practices, teachings and sources of wisdom and authority. On some occasions, students may have the opportunity to attend an audience with Pope Francis, who does formal appearances every week.

The city contains vast amounts of priceless works of art, historical buildings, monuments and ruins of the Roman Forum, palaces, museums, churches, basilicas, temples, piazzas and other captivating venues in general, giving students groups plenty to explore and a memorable experience which will last with them for many years to come.

Really excellent tour. The hotel was friendly and adequate to our needs without being luxurious. But it is what we needed. The Transport was exceptional. The Vatican breakfast and tour were exceptional. The tour of Rome was good though in future we will do that ourselves so that we can tailor it better to our needs. The only other thing I would change would be to go at another time of the year as it was exceptionally hot and our students found that quite difficult. But I would fully recommend this company. The tour was clear value for money and students said that it was the best school trip they had ever been on.
