School Trips to Venice
Known for its labyrinth of canals, stunning architecture and abundance of art, Venice is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. We offer a wide range of accommodation in Venice and for those on a smaller budget, staying in Lido di Jesolo is an ideal alternative. With regular flights servicing two main airports, groups will find Venice extremely accessible.
Travelling along the canal is a wonderful way to see the city and many of our groups take a gondola ride through the winding waterways. We also recommend a Three Island Lagoon tour that explores the picturesque islands of Murano, Torcello & Burano. Discover the ancient art of glass blowing in Murano and lack making in Burano. School parties will also enjoy a guided walking tour, higlighting some of Venice's main attractions: St Mark's Basilica, The Doge's Palace, Bridge of Sighs, Grand Canal and Rialto Bridge.
Venice has a large number of art galleries and museums, which your students will enjoy visiting firsthand. Art lovers will enjoy admiring the vast collection of Venetian masters at the Galleria dell Accademia, including Canaletto and Titian. Be captivated by the modernity and futurism of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. Investigate works by ground breaking artists such as Dali, Pollock and Picasso. Consider the characteristics and theories of Renaissance art at the Galleria Giorgio Francetti in the exquisite Ca' d'Oro. Take a sketchbook to Venice to capture the unique beauty of this city.
In February, Venice comes to life during a two week period for Carnevale. Your students will enjoy soaking up the carnival atmosphere, gorging in the many delectable events and entertainments hosted by the city. Celebrate this lavish tradition and join in the fun wearing a flamboyant Venetian mask!

recommended educational trips for Venice
St Mark's Square
The St. Mark's Square (Piazza San Marco), which was called "the drawing room of the world" by Musset, has been the centre of the religious and social life in the Venetian republic for almost one millennium.
Campo Santa Margherita Market
Like so many European squares, Campo Santa Margherita is named after the church that fronts it on one side, which was closed in 1810. Since then, the church has been used as a cinema and, most recently, an auditorium for the local university.
Visit the area around the Rialto Bridge – until the 19th Century the only bridge across the Grand Canal. Michelangelo’s was among the designs rejected to replace the original wooden bridge.
The Peggy Guggenheim Collection is the most important museum in Italy for European and American art from the first half of the 20th century. It is located in Peggy Guggenheim's former home, Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, on the Grand Canal in Venice.
The monumental estate of the Accademia Galleries is located in the prestigious centre of the Scuola Grande of Santa Maria della Carità.The homonymous church of Santa Maria and the monastery of the Canonici Lateranensi, built by Andrea Palladio, are integral parts of the Accademia.
