Travel Italy with Rev. Robert "Bud" Grant '80

In partnership with the Academy for the Study of St. Ambrose of Milan at St. Ambrose University, Rev. Robert "Bud" Grant brings alumni and friends on a 10-day tour of Italy. The 2018 tour is scheduled for March 11 through 22.  Learn more here.

This trip will begin in Rome and end in Milan.  On your trip, you will visit sites associated with St. Ambrose, like his tomb, the Biblioteca Ambrosiana, the Duomo, and the excavations under the Piazza del Duomo where you'll find the baptistery built by St. Ambrose and where Augustine was baptized.

The cost of the trip includes hotels, some meals, group transportation, and museum fees. Travelers are expected to book their own flights to Italy and pay for expenses not included in the trip fee, like some meals and incidentals. The trip is capped at 15 participants and includes a great deal of walking with modest accommodations.
