Advance Notice:  Study Trip to Italy, May 2013

Visit Italy with University of Texas Professor of the Year Sean Theriault, who teaches a university course on the Catholic Church, and his former student  Flaminia Chapman, now a top tour guide in Italy.

Sean has visited Italy many times and has excellent contacts with Vatican officials. He can take us behind the scenes to visit some of Italy’s most treasured sites and to understand the politics of the Catholic Church and the Vatican’s relationships with the United States. A highlight of our four days of sightseeing in Rome will be a private visit for our group to the Vatican Museum and the Sistine Chapel after closing hours.

Flaminia will take us to stay at her family villa in Umbria and into the countryside to meet the people, tour wonderful small towns, and have an up-close-and-personal look at the art and architecture, the wine, the cuisine, and the countryside.

Each group of 14 will have a week in Umbria, and the two groups will overlap in Rome.
Tentative price: $5,806 per person (single supplement $800) not including airfare, some meals, alcoholic beverages other than wine at dinner, gratuities, individual purchases, or trip insurance.
A limited number of single rooms will be available.
Full details and a final price will appear in the Spring 2013 Houston Seminar brochure.
Note: Some parts of the tour will require extensive walking on rough or uneven terrain.

A non-refundable deposit of $500 per person is required to hold your place. You would receive a refund of your deposit only if The Houston Seminar cancels the entire trip.
