An art school trip to Venice offers your students the opportunity to learn about the history of art in the Floating City!

Venice, built on top of a lagoon, is truly unique and so breathtakingly beautiful that it’s no wonder that artists have been drawn here for centuries. In fact, Venice has long been one of the most important centres for art in Europe, making this the perfect choice for a school art trip to Italy.

Like many of our school art groups who visit Venice, you may choose to stay in the nearby seaside resort of Lido di Jesolo, which offers quick access to the city and a quieter, more relaxed atmosphere in which to spend your evenings. And you could also choose to team up with your school's Italian department to make this a cross-curricular school trip.

I love being able to provide school trips that give students the opportunity to experience different cultures and languages. When I was a student, I visited a town near Lyon for a French exchange trip. I found it really interesting living with a French family, I really enjoyed the trip and my language skills improved, as I quickly became more confident at speaking the language – Caroline Hill Tour Consultant

Don't take our word for it …

Excellent trip. Would thoroughly recommend Halsbury Travel and our coach drivers who were brilliant with us and the students. — Tytherington School , November 2018
