When it comes to art and, more specifically, art history, there’s nowhere else in the world better to visit than Italy. Botticelli, Michelangelo, Da Vinci, Donatello; the country has a more than impressive list of artists that shaped and innovated the world of art, changing forever how it is perceived and hammering down the boundaries of creativity. If you’re a professor of art history, you shouldn’t pass up on the chance to take your students to visit this inspiring country with Anglo Educational Tours.
Places to See
In Italy, your students will be very much spoilt for choice in terms of sights and landmarks. If your study group is venturing to Rome, don’t pass up the opportunity to visit The Colosseum; an incredible feat of architecture. The Vatican is also a hot spot for art history lovers, being home to an abundance of museums and galleries, as well as the world renowned Sistine Chapel. The Borghese collection in Villa Borghese and the Uffizi gallery in Florence contain a wealth of historical art. The Statue of David in the Academia di Belle Arti, the Scrovegni Chapel in Padua and The Maestà in Siena Cathedral; everywhere you turn Italy is full to the brim with iconic art created throughout history! You could spend your whole trip in Florence alone, delving deep into the Renaissance period, or in Rome, spying the ancient architecture and scores of museums. Trust us, you won’t be stuck for ideas in this country!
Why should you do it?
Art history is such a vast and expansive subject, and Italy has it all there right before your students’ eyes, just waiting to be explored! As you probably know, art just isn’t the same when you’re looking at it from a textbook or on a computer screen, so the chance to take your students on a study abroad trip to see these masterpieces in the flesh, as it were, is an invaluable experience. With art history trips to Italy, the itinerary can be so comprehensive and include so many incredible pieces of iconic art that it’ll be one of the best things you can do for your students. How can they hope to pursue a career around the topic if you haven’t visited the world’s hub of art history?
Why an Educational Tour?
Sure, you could just visit Italy as a holiday and check out the art and culture, but if you want to get the most out of your experience, it’s best to do it as an educational study tour. With Anglo Educational Tours, your students will be guided in their experience rather than going in blind, and we’ll be able to help you plan an excellent itinerary and arrange everything you need. Being an established company, we have contacts that we can put you in touch with for tours and extra activities, and we can also be right by your side if anything goes wrong. It’s a no brainer, really!
If you think this sounds like the trip for you and your students (which it should if you’re an art lover!) then don’t hesitate to get in touch with us for more information. We’re always happy to answer any questions!
