The Italian capital is truly one of the world's greatest cities, where 2000 years of history are reflected in a treasure trove of monuments and buildings crammed with art and heritage, and where present-day life thrives and buzzes amongst the relics of an ancient civilisation.

Bustling, colourful Rome will offer your students a truly unique experience. Though a lifetime would not be long enough to explore Rome, plan your stay carefully and you will be surprised at how much you can see and do.

Our included city travel card enables journeys across the length and breadth of the city and then we recommend you don your walking shoes so you can ‘do in Rome what the Romans do’ – walk!

Head north along the Via del Corso, the city’s main thoroughfare, usually thronged with shoppers and sightseers; then head west, through the labyrinth of streets leading into Piazza Navona, the city’s most famous, liveliest and beautiful square. Within a short distance from here you’ll find yourself gazing in awe at the fabled Pantheon, a truly awe-inspiring architectural masterpiece built by the Emperor Hadrian and the city’s only architecturally intact monument from the days of the Empire.

Heading east, takes you into the heart of ‘travellers’ Rome. Here you find the city’s most famous meeting point, the fabled Spanish Steps – so called because they cascade spectacularly down into the Piazza di Spagna – and the legendary Fontana di Trevi, into which many a trio of coins has been thrown, and where the ‘beautiful people’ of Rome still gather to enjoy la dolce vita.

Visiting attractions and free time in a new environment with their fellow classmates builds confidence and strengthens relationships between students. Expanding your students’ cultural awareness makes for a valuable and memorable experience.

Tour Highlights

Study Experiences can arrange a wide range of visits in Rome, such as:

The Vatican Museums & Sistine Chapel

A huge complex of galleries and museums, probably housing the world’s greatest collection of antiquities, showcasing painting, sculpture, frescoes, tapestries and classical antiquities including Roman, Greek and Egyptian. Combine this with the impressive Sistine chapel and Raphael's Rooms and one visit here is not likely to be enough.

St Peter’s Basilica

Located within the walls of the Vatican, in Saint Peter's square, the interior of this cathedral includes 45 altars and has been decorated by many famous artists. Some of the most important works in the church are the Pietà by Michelangelo, the papal altar and the Throne of St. Peter, both by Bernini. The dome or cupola was designed by Michelangelo when he became chief architect in 1546.

Colosseum

This amazing amphitheatre is considered an architectural and engineering wonder and remains as a standing proof of both the grandeur and the cruelty of the Roman world.

Trevi Fountain

Located in the historic centre of Rome, Fontana di Trevi is undoubtedly the most famous and spectacular fountain in the city, and hence, is one of the most popular attractions. The fountain derives its name from its position at the intersection of three roads (tre vie). It stands at the end of the Aqua Virgo, which is one of the ancient aqueducts that supplied fresh water to Rome since 19 B.C. It brings water all the way from the Salone Springs, which is situated over 20 kilometres away.

The sea god Neptune in a chariot in the form of a shell dominates the centre of the fountain. The chariot is pulled by two sea horses, with each sea horse being guided by a Triton. According to legend, anyone who throws a coin into the water is guaranteed to return to the Eternal City of Rome. The coin should be tossed over your shoulder while you are standing with your back to the fountain.

Piazza di Spagna & Spanish Steps

The Piazza di Spagna is connected to a French church, Trinità dei Monti, at the top of the hill via a long staircase, known as the Scalinata della Trinità dei Monti or Spanish Steps. The idea of connecting the church with the square below originates from the 17th century, when the French also planned a statue of King Louis XIV of France at the top of the staircase. Papal opposition caused the plans to be shelved until 1723, when the monumental staircase was built without the statue. The elegant staircase consists of 137 steps over twelve different flights.

At the bottom of the Spanish Steps is the Piazza di Spagna, a long, triangular square and Fontana della Barcaccia, a fountain commissioned by Pope Urban VIII and designed by Gian Lorenzo Bernini.

The Time Elevator

The Time Elevator provides a very different journey through the history of the Eternal City. Discover the legend of Romolus and Remus, the betrayal of Julius Caesar at the hands of Brutus and the work of Michelangelo in the Sistine Chapel. It is also possible to visualise the reconstruction of the Colosseum. Through three panoramic screens, flight simulators and a state-of-the-art surround sound system; you will be projected into the cinema dimension: a deep jump in time through 2,750 years and the most important events in Rome’s history.

Ancient Rome Walking Tour

This guided walking tour of Ancient Rome will take you from the Colosseum and lead you through to the Roman Forum. The tour lasts for around three hours and takes you back to the days of Imperial Rome where the Forum was the civic and political centre of the entire known world. We aim to bring this to life by giving your students an insight into some of the people who were so synonymous of that period.
