About this trip

GCSE and A level school art trips abroad don't get better than Florence. Florence is the birthplace of High Renaissance art and many of the most influential historical painters, sculptors and architects. Walk the same streets of Leonardo da Vinci, see Michelangelo's David at Galleria dell’Accademia and visit the Santa Maria del Fiore cathedral with Brunelleschi's Dome - an architectural marvel.

Take a look at a sample itinerary below for your art and design school trip and see which attractions are on offer during your school or sixth form college tour.

Other Art & Design Visits

  • The Duomo
    The Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore or the Duomo, as it is more commonly known, is the heart of Florence. The cathedral complex, located in Piazza del Duomo, includes the Baptistery and Giotto's Campanile and is part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site and guided tours can be arranged.
  • Ponte Vecchio
    The Ponte Vecchio is the oldest of the six bridges spanning the River Arno in Florence at its narrowest point. Originally constructed in Roman times it was destroyed in a flood in the 12th century and was rebuilt only to fall victim to another flood in the 14th century. Then rebuilt, it was the only bridge which remained intact when the Germans retreated in August 1944. Now a major tourist attraction, the bridge still has shops built along it.
  • Santa Croce
    The Basilica di Santa Croce is the largest Franciscan church in the world. It is situated on the Piazza di Santa Croce, about 800 metres south west of the Duomo, and is the burial place for some of the most famous Italians in history including Michaelangelo, Galileo, Macchivelli, Foscolo, Gentile and Rossini.
