Why visit Venice and Lido di Jesolo?
Explore Italy’s floating city
Venice is built on the shallow Venetian lagoon and is famous for its network of canals. There is no other city quite like Venice and your students will love this opportunity to explore a city that’s often ranked as one of the world’s most beautiful.
While in Venice, make sure you take some time to explore the Grand Canal. Venice’s main waterway, the buildings that line it represent 500 years of Venetian history, starting in the 13th century.
Many of the city’s most famous palazzi line the Grand Canal and you’ll also see some great examples of fondaco houses, which combine a warehouse with the merchant’s residence above.
And, of course, you mustn’t miss a visit to St. Mark’s Square, which was the centre of Venetian political and religious life for centuries. You can explore the exquisite St. Mark’s Basilica and the impressive Doge’s Palace – the residence of the leaders of the Republic of Venice until its fall in 1797.
Discover incredible art
Thanks to its control of important trade routes, the Republic of Venice became incredibly wealthy and many rich Venetians became enthusiastic patrons of the arts.
This led to the development of the Venetian School, which was influenced by the Paduan School and the work of Antonello da Messina. Masters of the Venetian School include Titian, Tintoretto and Veronese.
This rich artistic heritage is reflected in the city’s many prestigious art museums, including the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, the Galleria dell’Accademia and the Correr Museum, all of which can be visited on an art school trip to Venice. If you’re looking for a school trip to inspire your artists, Venice is certainly hard to beat!
Experience the rich culture
The Republic of Venice was a wealthy, powerful maritime republic for over a thousand years and, as such, has developed a unique culture within Italy.
Centuries-old traditions continue to be practised here, including regattas and festivals on the Grand Canal and the hugely important Carnival.
Part of Carnival traditions in Venice include, of course, the famous Venetian tradition of mask-wearing. We can arrange for your students to take part in a Venetian mask workshop, which is an unmissable cultural experience for students on an Italian school trip to Venice!
