School Trips to Florence

The glory of Florence is rooted in its past.  The political dynasty Medici commanded the city's fortunes for centuries and encouraged the city’s Renaissance. The result is a city that is rich with formidable galleries, treasure-crammed churches, famous sculptures, paintings and architecture, the perfect place to inspire your art students.

This rich artistic and cultural past also makes it the perfect place to immerse language students in Italian culture, and the city offers a wealth of opportunities for them to practise conversational skills, taste authentic cuisine and experience a Florentine way of life. 

The area around Florence is not just home to classical treasures.  It is also home to hi-tech superbrands like Ferrari, Lambourghini and Ducati which makes it the perfect place to take students of design and technology who will appreciate these beautiful machines at the forefront of modern manufacturing.

In short there is so much to see and do in Florence you may have trouble choosing what to fit in.  We can help you create an itinerary that perfectly complements classroom learning.  Speak to one of our travel experts today for the best advice.

Top Tips from Our Travel Experts

"As the birthplace of Renaissance, Florence has an abundance of museums with amazing architecture and fascinating art, so you are spoilt for choice. Wander through the Boboli gardens, or take a picture on the Ponte Vecchio bridge, as you head to the Santa Maria Del Fiore Cathedral. If you feel the need for speed, you can visit Ducati, Pagani or Ferrari, seeing how the cars and bikes are made on the production line. It is rather warm in the summer, so early autumn or early spring as the best times to visit. Don’t forget to make time to sit and eat a Florentine."
