The Alumni Study Trip to Italy is no ordinary excursion!  Father Bud Grant, an expert on the life of Saint Ambrose, leads participants through back streets and alleys in some of Italy's most beloved cities.  Filled with rich history and culture, this trip will require participants to do as much thinking as walking!  Throughout this intensive visit, you will be intellectually, spiritually, socially, physically, and artistically enriched.  If you are interested in immersing yourself in the life of our Patron Saint, Ambrose of Milan, then this is the experience for you!

Trip Dates: May 22 - June 2, 2016
City Stops: Milan, Florence, Assisi, and Rome
Top Destinations: Tomb of Saint Ambrose, The Scavi, Sistine Chapel, Uffizi, Colosseum, and much more!
