School Tours to Italy

The most popular subjects that UK school students study on trips to Italy include Classics and History, Geography, and of course food technology. While there are a wealth of regional Italian visit options for single subject and single centre trips, lots of schools choose to tailor make cross curricular tours and visit more than one area of Italy, so that their students can get the most from this wonderful country.

So what makes Italy a great school trip destination?

Italy is an incredible country for a school visit, with a long list of world famous destinations and educational learning opportunities. The country is also one of the most popular European countries for students wishing to study overseas at University level.

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. Further south, the Bay of Naples is a superb place to study both tourism and geography, with the huge Mt. Vesuvius volcano looming over the surrounding landscape. 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.
