An art school trip to Rome is a step back in time, where you’ll feel centuries of turbulent history under your feet!

Your young artists will be inspired by the art collections of the Vatican, as well as Michelangelo’s world-famous masterpiece on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.You can also choose to visit the incredible art collections at the Palazzo Barberini and the Galleria Borghese, giving your art students the opportunity to develop their understanding of the history of art.

Other must-sees include the magnificent Colosseum, one of Ancient Rome’s greatest architectural achievements and the spectacular Trevi Fountain.

You may also like to consider turning this into a cross-curricular trip by inviting your school's Italian, classical studies or religious studies departments to join you.

Need help?

I love being able to help others experience the joys of travel. Being able to talk enthusiastically about places you have visited yourself is always a pleasure. – Zoe Campbell Learning & Development Manager

Don't take our word for it …

Sachsenhausen is a must for a Berlin visit, as well as the traditional sites – TV Tower, Reichstag, Brandenburg Gate, Jewish Memorial, etc. For a leisurely afternoon the Berlin Zoo is also worth considering and we also tried out the lesser known Otto Weidz Museum which our students thoroughly enjoyed. Take full advantage of the U/S Bahn during the visit, particularly if travelling with KS4 students – we packed so much into the visit as a direct result. I’ll definitely be back for more as 4 days doesn’t even scratch the surface with so many fascinating sites easily accessible. — Horbury Academy , October 2018
