Reasons to Visit
Bridge of Sighs
Famous in poetry and legend for linking the Doge’s Palace to the prisons and so offering the condemned their last view of the outside world.
The city's most important and prestigious art gallery features an impressive collection of Venetian paintings and works by such artists as Bellini, Titian and Mantegna.
The Doge's Palace, Venice, has façades which date from 1309-1424, designed by Giovanni and Bartolomeo Buon. The palace, started in the ninth century, several times rebuilt, and completed in the Renaissance period, forms part of that great scheme of town-planning which was carried out through successive centuries.
St Mark's Square
The heart of Venice, home to St Mark’s Church and the Doge’s Palace. There are no monuments in the large square due to the Venetians not wanting to promote individual glory above communal progress. Thus a statue planned by Napoleon of himself never materialised.
Visit the area around the Rialto Bridge – until the 19th Century the only bridge across the Grand Canal. Michelangelo’s was among the designs rejected to replace the original wooden bridge.
Murano Glass Museum
Visit this magnificent glass museum. The museum is within Palazzo Giustiniani and houses various collections of glass works describing the history of glass making in Venice. There is an archaeological collection and a modern glass section.
Guided Tour of Venice
A guided tour of Venice on foot will offer the opportunity to see the main attractions around the area of St Mark’s Square. This will include St Mark’s Basilica and the Doge’s Palace. An experienced guide will give information on the history of the city and will be able to answer any questions you have on the city.
Gardaland is the biggest amusement park in Italy and one of the largest in the whole of Europe. Unique attractions lead the visitors in search of faraway worlds like the mysterious Valley of the Kings, Merlin’s Castle, the Medieval Joust, the Pirate’s Galleon or the fantastic journey on board rubber dinghies amidst oriental temples.
Aqualandia (lido de Jesolo, Venice) is a water and theme park, which has recently been elected best European Water Park. It mimics a real Caribbean Isle next to Venice, an oasis of entertainment of 80.000 square metres where relax, fun, extreme sports and water attractions are mixed together for every ages.

Day Trip to Verona
Take a trip to the home of Romeo and Juliet and enjoying this beautiful city with its famous amphitheatre.
La Rotonda is situated atop a hill in suburban Vicenza. Its four facades look out upon cultivated fields on three sides and a wooded slope on the fourth. The central dome, one of Palladio's most famous and imitated motifs, was itself inspired by the Pantheon of ancient Rome.
Day Trip to Padua & Vicenza
Padua is a walled city situated along the Bacchiglione. The Basilica and Botanical gardens are found on the southern edge of town. The ancient Roman layout of Vincenza is still virtually intact . This is the home of the nobility who splashed out on architecture and villas – especially the classical architect Palladio.
Day Trip to Florence
School trips to Venice offer the ideal opportunity for a day trip to Florence thanks to its excellent location. Students can marvel at the Florence’s culture and history and its unrivalled beauty and atmosphere, and will leave with a lasting impression of one of the most unique cities on the world.
Day Trip to Bologna
Largely untouched by tourism, Bologna is surrounded by hills, yet the city centre has remained the same since the Renaissance offering splendid dusky red-coloured buildings, wide piazzas and covered walkways, with floors laid with marble. Bologna has everything from beautiful piazzas, churches and museums, to bustling cafes, bars and nightlife.
Island Cruise including Murano & Burano
