Venice is one of the greatest cities in the world and offers one of the most unique settings built on over 100 islands, connected by nearly 400 bridges and runs through a maze of alleyways, small squares, palaces, churches and shops.
School trips to Venice are particularly thrilling for students who have an interest in art because of the many museums and galleries which hold some of the world’s most spectacular art treasures. Even the Churches contain artistic gems and authentic paintings by talented artists such as Titian, Tintoretto and Bellini.
Students who are lucky enough to visit Venice will be able to explore this small but perfectly formed city, exclusively by pedestrian routes or on water, as there are no roads for cars, motorbikes or bikes. Instead lanes, waterways and canals are used enabling student groups to hop off at any Vaporetti stop and sample the range of art on offer.
