Sicily is the largest of the Mediterranean islands and offers a fantastic climate, stunning scenery which combined with Italian hospitality is guaranteed to create a school trip that is both educational and enjoyable.
Few islands have been invaded and ruled by so many different civilisations, all of which have left their mark on the island and given it a unique and rich cultural heritage. Here students can visit some of the best-preserved ancient Greek temples and amphitheatres in the world, view roman mosaics as well as ancient settlements creating the perfect outdoor classroom for students of classical history.
The island’s coastline and unspoilt sea-beds combined with fertile volcanic slopes, make it an ideal location for a geography field trip. Be sure to visit Mount Etna, Europe’s largest active volcano, and enjoy breath-taking views of the volcanic landscape from its summit. Learn how the population cope, living under this constant shadow which both threatens and sustains the farming community.

Top Tips from Our Travel Experts
"With Sicily it is always good to have a clear idea of when you would like to travel. If you want to travel during school holidays, flight prices can be well over double the cost of travelling within term time. You will not need to worry about public transport as you will need a coach and guide for all major visits. It is impossible to feel satisfied by a Sicily trip without having made the once-in-a-lifetime climb up Mount Etna. This is a trip that will resonate with your students for a long time."
