Join Fr. J. P. Hough, SJ, for a trip to Italy that will take you to all the must-see sites. All you have to do is pack and show up!


  • Florence: So much beauty to enjoy in this center of Italian culture! We’ll visit the Piazza Santa Croce and Basilica of Santa Croce; the Pitti Palace and the Uffizi Gallery, both places where you can view works of the Great Masters; the Academy of Fine Arts and its famous Accademia Gallery, home to Michelangelo’s David; the San Marco Museum and more.

  • Chianti Region: Sample both wine and olive oil right where the fruits are grown.
  • Assisi: In the village of Santa Maria degli Angeli, tour the Basilica of St. Francis and the Basilica of Saint Clare.
  • Rome: Our stop in the Eternal City will include several significant Jesuit sites, including the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola, the Church of the Gesù (the Society of Jesus’ Mother Church) and the rooms where St. Ignatius lived as superior general. In Vatican City, we will tour the Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel and attend Mass at St. Peter’s Basilica. You’ll also see the catacombs with their ancient tombs and burial chambers, the Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls, St. John Lateran Basilica, the Spanish Steps, the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. You’ll be able to toss a coin into the Trevi Fountain to ensure your future return to The Eternal City! A Papal Audience is possible, subject to the Holy Father’s availability.
  • Castelli Romani: Our excursion to the Roman Castles will include a winery tour and a cooking class with lunch.
