Rome School Trips

Prices from: £319 (Based on 4 Days, 3 Nights)

School trips to Rome offer your students the chance to explore a city steeped in 2000 years of history, culture, and religion.

Wander down every cobbled street or in every piazza, and you will find another breathtaking wonder. On your school trip to Rome, you can discover the architectural splendour of the ancient Roman city, to the refined opulence of Vatican City; Rome has more historic sites than any other city in the world and was the heart of Roman society. The Trevi Fountain is always a show stopper, along with magnificent views atop the nearby Spanish Steps.

Despite the incredible history on offer in Rome, it makes a valuable cross-curricular destination. You can explore the Vatican on a RE school trip to Rome, or discover the glorious art on display including the Michelangelo masterpieces across the city. Yet it also has a new beating heart and is a vibrant contemporary capital city. This city is one of the must-see destinations in Europe, and an essential destination for school trips.

Adaptable Travel can help you tailor-make a school tour to Rome based around your exact requirements, whether that be history, art, religious studies, food or cross-curriculum.

Thorpe Bay GB
Hotel was basic which suited the number of teenagers on the trip but some of the utilities were not working.

Really excellent tour. The hotel was friendly and adequate to our needs without being luxurious. But it is what we needed. The Transport was exceptional. The Vatican breakfast and tour were exceptional. The tour of Rome was good though in future we will do that ourselves so that we can tailor it better to our needs. The only other thing I would change would be to go at another time of the year as it was exceptionally hot and our students found that quite difficult. But I would fully recommend this company. The tour was clear value for money and students said that it was the best school trip they had ever been on.
