St Benedict in Rome Walking Tour

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. 

This tour also visits some lesser known hidden gems of Rome including the mother-house of the Benedictines, the mother-house of the Dominicans, the famous keyhole, the orange garden, the skull of St Valentine, Tiber Island, the relics of the apostle St Bartholomew, the house of St Benedict, the Abbey of St Cecilias and finally the Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere.
