Here is what a few of our world travelers had to say about last year's trip to Italy:
"The 2023 Europe trip was an eye-opening experience that enabled me to immerse myself in a foreign culture while connecting with my Farrell brothers. It is a trip that I'll never forget." - Christopher Barresi '24
The 2023 Easter trip to Italy
“This trip to Italia was an amazing experience full of fun and incredible memories that I will never forget and will always look back on. It has made me realize how incredible and different the world is and has made me become more interested in traveling to other countries.” - Joseph Pernice '24
