Below is a sample of excursions Equity can organise for your school trip to Rome - for subject specific excursions have a look at the
recommended educational trips for Rome

The Vatican

Seat of the Catholic religion and home of the Pope, there’s nowhere better to explore the history and development of Catholicism. Experience the Sistine Chapel and the world’s largest museum complex while appreciating the power of this independent state.

St Peters Basilica

One of the world’s holiest Catholic sites and largest churches, this cavernous building features a breath-taking dome and masterpieces by Michelangelo and Bernini. Study the power of Catholicism and the importance of pilgrimage as you experience this Vatican City highlight.

The Sistine Chapel

Commissioned in 1480, the Sistine Chapel is the site of the papal conclave and is home to Michelangelo’s elaborate ceiling and Last Judgment fresco. Study the role and selection of the Pope and explore religious art in this powerful building.

Archbasilica of St John Lateran

The Pope’s official ecclesiastical seat, St John Lateran takes the title of ‘Archbasilica’ and ranks above all other Roman Catholic churches. It houses a fragment of the table on which Jesus was said to have consumed the last supper.

Colosseum and Forum

Explore the role and importance of religion in the 2,000 year old Colosseum, where gladiators and beasts once battled. Tour the adjacent Forum and see the ruins of ancient Rome’s most exclusive neighbourhood, where emperors lived in luxury.

Palatine Hill

Right next to the Colosseum, Palatine Hill is one of the most ancient parts of Rome. Considered as one of the former most desirable neighbourhoods, this area was home to aristocrats and emperors during the Roman Empire. According to Roman mythology it’s also believed to be where Romulus and Remus were found by the she-wolf Lupa. Today, the area is an extensive archaeological site, where you can find the ruins of the Stadium of Domitian and Flavian Palace.

Baths of Caracalla

The ancient ruins of these luxurious public baths still remain. Dating back to AD 206, and designed to accommodate around 1,600 bathers, they were still used up until the 6th century. Today the archaeological site is one of the best preserved Roman baths in the world. In the summer months it is also used for open-air performances of ballet and opera.

Ara Pacis

The Ara Pacis is a spectacular altar built during the Roman Empire in gratitude of Emperor Augustus. Made out of marble, the altar exhibits some of the finest stone masonry work from this era. The monument celebrates the ongoing peace in the Mediterranean during the emperor’s victorious campaigns in Hispania and Gaul.

Gladiator School

Attend Rome’s modern Gladiator School and wield your wooden swords and shields! A fun afternoon activity for all students, learn about the history of ancient Roman fighters, watch exhilarating live demonstrations and take part in a friendly duel.

Trevi Fountain

You can’t go to Rome without visiting the magnificent Trevi Fountain. One of the most famous and photographed fountains in the world, make sure to head here in the evening when the Baroque fountain is lit up. Throw a penny in and make a wish! Who knows it may come true...


Looking for the best preserved building from ancient Rome? Look no further than the Pantheon. A lasting testimony to the skill and creativity of Roman classical architecture, the Pantheon is one of the most beautiful buildings in this city.

Catacombs of San Callisto

Located on the outskirts of central Rome, the Catacombs of San Callisto will certainly peak the interest of your students. The Catacombs are the largest in Rome and became the official cemetery of the Roman Church during the Roman Empire. Archaeologists have found the tombs of 16 popes, thousands of Christians and dozens of martyrs over 20km of tunnels which lay hidden beneath the city.

Ostia Antica

A short trip from central Rome by coach you will find Ostia Antica - a beautifully preserved port city, where students can get a feel of what a bustling industrial area would have looked like during the Roman Empire. Here you will find the remnants of warehouses, docks, baths, houses, apartments and an open air theatre.

Hadrian’s Villa

Owned by Emperor Hadrian, Hadrian’s Villa is considered one of the most opulent private buildings in the Roman world. Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this complex of well preserved ruins gives a glimpse of how extravagant the villa must have looked during the time it was inhabited.
