School Trips to Venice

Venice is one of the greatest cities in the world and one of the most unique. The city is built on over 100 islands, connected by nearly 400 bridges and is a maze of alleyways, small squares, palaces, churches and shops. For art students it holds many treasures housed not only in the world renowned museum collections located here but also in the churches and chapels dotted around the city which contain authentic paintings by Titian, Tintoretto and Bellini.

The city is very accessible and compact and students will enjoy exploring using the Vaporetto water buses offering a unique way to get around the waterways and canals connecting the city's main sights and attractions. Taking a gondola ride and buying a carnival mask are must dos for any visitor to Venice, in short a few days here will leave many lasting memories with the perfect mix of fun and educational value.

Top Tips from Our Travel Experts

"The city is full of incredible examples of art and architecture. Take a boat ride down the Grand Canal to see incredible old palaces paved with marble and mosaics.  If you can, go for an early morning ride so you can see the city come to life, at this time it shouldn’t be too busy or hot. Or visit one of the markets such as the Rialto Market to enjoy some very fresh traditional Italian food. Try to avoid summer months as the weather can be very hot and there will be lots of walking involved. Do also take a detailed map to help prevent yourself getting lost around the canals and narrow streets!"
