School Trips to Sicily
Blessed with a heritage that's as varied as it is appealing, Sicily has many more attributes than it might, at first, appear.
For budding geologists, this could prove to be their favourite destination. Home to Europe's largest active volcano, let your students experience a tour that takes them to the rim of the crater, or encourage them to explore the multitude of hot springs and mud baths, all in the safety of the trained guides. Alternatively, take your students to one of the five UNESCO World Heritage Sites that adorn the surroundings.
To view the ancient archaeology on Sicily provides the icing on the cake - Segesta is home to, arguably, the best preserved Greek Temple in the world. Or see the Temple of Olympian Zeus, probably the largest Doric temple ever, and realise that Sicily has a history that stems from all over the world.
Our school trips promise to increase understanding and appreciation of this fantastic island, and your students will love the experience of seeing all the heritage, history and active landscapes so much that they will want to return again and again.

Siracusa is a historic city in Sicily, the capital of the province Syracuse. The city is notable for its rich Greek history, culture, amphitheatres and architecture. The birthplace of the preeminent mathematician and engineer Archimedes, the town was founded in 733 BC by Corinthian settlers, becoming one of the first Greek colonies on the island. The Greek theatre, amphitheatre and Archimedes Tomb is well worth a visit.
Taormina occupies a fabulous position overlooking the sea right opposite Etna volcano. Situated to the south-west of Taormina is the Alcantara Gorge. This natural monument of basalt rock was created by the eruption of the volcano, and is an excellent talking point for students.
Subject to many myths and legends, this stunning coastline of Sicily will capture your students’ imagination, opening their eyes to Sicilian culture and tradition on your exciting language tour.
