Superb tour for those interested in St Benedict or Benedictine Spirituality.  This is the original St Benedict Tour in Rome. 

Journey with an expert guide to some of the principal places in Rome associated with the monastic patriarch - St Benedict.  Few men have had such a major impact on the development of Western Civilization and culture, and on this tour you will learn more about the man, his spirituality and the development of religious life in the Church.
