School Trips to Italy

School trips to Italy are always popular because not only does this vibrant country offer a fantastic range of educational experiences, it also offers the opportunity to enjoy them under the Mediterranean sun!

A multicentre educational tour to Naples and Sorrento is one of the favourite options among our school groups, with possible visits including Mt. Vesuvius, Pompeii and Herculaneum. It works so well for so many subjects, including Italian language, geography, classical studies and food technology - making it ideal for cross-curricular school trips too! Already been to Naples on a geography school trip? Why not visit Sicily next time?

Florence, the birthplace of the Renaissance, is the perfect setting for art and maths school trips. And Rome, the Eternal City, is ideal for school trips focusing on religious studies, classical studies and art.

Venice is also an excellent choice for art school trips to Italy, thanks to its many fantastic galleries. It’s also a great option for a trip designed to introduce your Italian language students to the culture

Once the centre of western civilisation, Italy offers so much history and culture that it’s worth visiting on a school trip simply to better understand what it means to be European. It’s home to the world’s largest number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites and is the fifth most-visited country in the world.

Even if you’re not visiting Italy on a food technology school trip, you’ll certainly enjoy sampling the country’s many culinary delights, many of which are incredibly child-friendly and so you won’t have to worry about your students going hungry!

And it's the perfect choice for a warmer geography school trip! Italy sits at the meeting point of the Eurasian and African plates and so experiences a considerable amount of volcanic and seismic activity. It’s home to four active volcanoes, including Etna and Stromboli off the coast of Sicily, and Vesuvius, the only active volcano in mainland Europe. A school geography trip to Naples and Sorrento will allow your students to consider why people continue to live in the shadow of such a destructive volcano, when the evidence of the risks is so clear to see at the archaeological sites of Herculaneum and Pompeii.
