Educational Trips to Lake Garda Italy

Arguably the most beautiful of the Italian lakes, Garda is a wonderful base for a school tour of northern Italy. From here you can enjoy culture and leisure in equal measure, with easy access to popular sights in Verona and Sirmione, as well as the fantastic cities of Venice and Milan.

Destination Guide

There are various accommodation options in the region (see below). Evening fun can be organised in the region at the Benacus amusement centre where there are plenty of games, karting and arcades.

The coach journey from Calais takes approximately 15 hours travelling through the night, while flights into northern Italy are available from London and several regional airports.

Educational Visit

With so many varied and interesting educational and cultural possibilities in the region, we will build a tailor-made tour programme and itinerary to meet with your requirements and priorities. We can organise opportunities to develop language skills and to improve historical and artistic awareness.

It’s easy to immerse yourselves in the culture and history of the region here. Visit the sights of Verona including the Roman Arena and the balcony made famous from Romeo and Juliet. Enjoy a day trip to Venice and experience the picture-postcard sights of this incredible city. Take a boat trip along the Grand Canal - or even a private gondola – and see St Mark’s Square, the Basilica and the Rialto Bridge. What’s more, we can organise cookery classes, pasta making and wine tasting for a real taste of the local culture and cuisine.

Excursions

A boat trip around the lake is a lovely local excursion and can include stops at Sirmione Castle, Desenzano and Lasize. A day trip to Milan allows free time to see the Duomo cathedral or impressive San Siro stadium. But you can also enjoy the glitz and glamour of the shops and boutiques of this chic and fashionable city.

The fantastic Gardaland amusement park is always a popular excursion day for groups. What’s more, if its thrills in the water that you are after, then the CanevaWorld theme park (May-September only) will be a fun day out for everyone.

What They Say

As opposed to simply being sold a tour package, we felt the service Absolute School Travel offered went above and beyond our expectations from a travel company, than you for that.
