School Tours to Italian Cities
The capital city, Rome, is like an open air museum, with stunning archaeological remains everywhere you look, and the Vatican City a popular stop for school groups.

While in the north of Italy, Florence is another historic city schools can visit, with one of the world's best museums of art and, unquestionably the best place in the world to go if your students are studying the Renaissance period.
