Italy Study Tour

Travel to Italy and Receive Credit

Italy Study TourVFCC is pleased to announce the Italy study tour that will run concurrently with the Concert Choir’s visit to Italy during Spring Break 2014. We will visit cities such as Venice and Florence, and Padua. The study tour will take you to many places of historical significance such as St. Peter’s Basilica. The Basilica is not only significant to a billion Catholics around the world but also to non-Catholics because it was financing its construction that lay at the root of the Protestant Reformation led by Martin Luther. Other sites include the Colosseum, the Pantheon, the Roman Forum, and Milvian Bridge, the site where the Emperor Constantine received his vision which would change the course of Western civilization as well as church history.

Participants who are selected for this study tour enroll in a 3-credit course entitled Italian Civilization: Rome to the Present, designed to prepare them for the visit and to better appreciate and understand the significance of the sites visited. Please note that space for this study tour is limited to 15 students. Prayerfully consider being part of this marvelous opportunity. Come back often to this site for more news about the trip.
