Venice Italy


The Italy we know today is a relatively modern country, but the peoples and cultures who have inhabited this place have left behind an incredible historical legacy. Perparations for a school trip to Italy often hightlight the contrast between northern and southern Italy, but even region to region, the once hostile city states each have a unique character that continues to this day.

Italy is a cultural hotspot for school group tours, allowing students to study anything from the obvious (Roman history or food technology) to the more obscure (religious studies or music). The captial, Rome, is an obvious place to base your group, especially if they are studying the abundant Roman ruins that still dominate the city. But there are plenty of other places to consider. One of the unique aspects of Italy is that no matter what your topic or learning objective, you can base yourself pretty much anywhere and still have plenty to see and learn.

Group travel options to Italy. Too far to travel by coach (unless you are on an incredibly tight budget!), flights to Italy are quick and easy and available from most most regional and national airports.
