Not a ‘vacation'.
Not a ‘pilgrimage'.
What's it really like to travel with REGINA?
What happens when a bunch of young Catholics converge on the Emerald Isle?
Join a small group of Regina Magazine insiders (ages 21-35) as we explore Rome, Norcia, and Florence in the full flush of Italy's spring, from April 7 – April 15, 2018.
Explore Rome with an expert. Stay in the Vatican's neighborhood — wander over to St Peter's for Mass any time. You will see ancient Rome, medieval Rome, Baroque Rome — as well as monks living high up in the Apennines, and the stupendous art and beauty of Florence and Tuscany.
Walk in the footsteps of thousands of saints. Italian wines, dining, and Latin Masses by the Tiber, high up on a mountain and in the family church of the great Medici family and so much more!
ANCIENT ROME: Descend into the ancient world in the scavi underneath the High Altar of St Peter’s, explore the catacombs, the Coliseum, the Forum and the Palatine Hill, as well as walk in St. Peter’s footsteps on the ancient Appian Way.
BAROQUE ROME: Stunning St. Peter’s Basilica and marvel at stupendous churches and piazzas of Rome. Roman specialties in fascinating locales.
NORCIA: Overnight in an agriturismo, visiting the Monks of Norcia high in the Apennine Mountains for a Latin Mass and a taste of their miraculous beer!
FLORENCE: The Duomo, Baptistry, the Uffizi gallery plus a private tour of a Medici church and a bespoke drawing class in the atelier of a Florentine artist. Superb wine and Tuscan cuisine.
TUSCANY: An insider’s visit to the Palazzo in the vineyards, now the seminary of the Institute of Christ the King, and to the Sisters Adorers and their brand new school.
