Art Treasures, Cathedrals, and Ancient Roman SItes

It would be hard to overstate just how many momentous historic landmarks and artistic treasures draw student groups in modern-day Italy. In past centuries, some of the world’s most celebrated art masters made their home here—among them Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Giotto, and Botticelli—and today’s aspiring artists can study these works with privately guided school group tours of The Vatican Museums, the Galleria dell’Accademia, and the Uffizi. Architecture students, meanwhile, can relish school group tours to landmarks like Venice’s Basilica di San Marco and Palazzo Ducale, Florence’s Duomo and Baptistery, and Pisa’s Piazza del Duomo with its famous Leaning Tower. And school groups studying Ancient Rome can probe the remnants of the empire with group tours of the ruined palaces and temples of Palatine Hill, the Roman Forum, and the singular Colosseum.

Of course, school groups don’t just come to Italy to study. In their free time, students can also avail themselves of Italy’s lively bars, clubs, and cafes—and take group daytrips to medieval monasteries and walled villages in the Tuscan countryside, the ancient ruined city of Pompeii, and more.
