46 St. Anthony Middle School students and parents have just returned from a fabulous Spring Break tour of Italy. St. Anthony’s students toured the Vatican and St. Peter’s Basilica as well as the ancient Roman sites of the Colosseum and the Forum. A highlight of the Rome visit was an afternoon at the Gladiator school where both students and parents practiced gladiator combat techniques. The tour continued with a visit to the Basilica of St. Francis in Assisi and Palm Sunday Mass at the Cathedral in Bologna. The final stop of the tour was a beautiful day spent in the city of Venice where the students enjoyed a gondola ride and a tour of the Doge’s Palace. With shopping, food, and gelato for all, it was a very successful Spring Break trip!
