The Advantages of Choosing Rome for Your School Trip


Choosing the right city or location for your school trip can sometimes be the hardest decision as a teacher. Your aim is to offer an experience filled with culture, fun and education, all of which can be found in Rome. In this city, you will almost certainly have an abundance of activities for your students to enjoy for almost every subject, whether it be history, art, religion or architecture.

The inspiration Rome offers for art and design groups is second to none. The galleries are an art-fanatic’s dream and roman architecture is enough to give anybody a shot at becoming an award-winning photographer.


Having been built in 753 BC by Romulus and Remus, you are spoilt for choice when choosing historical visits in Rome. Every visit between the heights of Palatine Hill and the depths of the Catacombs will leave your students in awe.  If you simply don’t have time to fit it all in, you can visit the Time Elevator Roma to get an entertaining education of Rome’s 3000-year history, perfect for all ages.

With Vatican City situated just north of the city centre, the religious aspects of a trip to Rome cannot be overemphasised. A visit to the Vatican Museum and the Sistine Chapel is a must do which will leave all your students captivated and if you keep your eyes peeled you may even catch a glimpse of the Pope!

After a long day experiencing all that Rome can offer, you can retreat to one of our authentic Italian restaurants where students can relax, collate their thoughts about the day just gone and get excited for what tomorrow has in-store.
