About this trip

Rooted at the center of ancient Europe, Rome has a rich and fascinating past. Wandering through the cobbled streets, this history is clear to see in the many prominent Roman monuments, excavations and museums that define the city’s landscape.

For history students, there is no greater destination than Rome. Learning about the inner workings of this ancient city first hand can help to provide the perfect case study for upcoming examinations and case studies.

Whilst, students will be able to visit the world-famous Colosseum, as well as The Vatican, The Roman Forum and The Arch of Constantine.

Educational Visits In Rome

Other Study Visits

  • The Catacombs
    Those on a Rome tour will need a coach to visit these ancient Christian burial grounds which lie on the edge of the city. Your site guide will take your underground to explore these large fascinating tombs which were created for Christians who did not have their own land to be buried on in the First Century. We recommend continuing on your coach to visit Ostia Antica or Tivoli.
  • Ostia Antica
    Like Pompeii it’s an abandoned Roman city, unlike Pompeii it wasn’t the victim of a volcano, so it’s far less well known but provides an excellent visit for Classicists. The site is noted for the excellent preservation of its ancient buildings, magnificent frescoes and impressive mosaics. Ostia’s amphitheatre especially is wonderfully preserved. A visit to Ostia provides an opportunity to explore a Roman city in its entirety, and allows a glimpse of everyday life.
  • Tivoli
    A popular retreat since ancient times sits 18 miles east of Rome. The main attraction for Classics groups here is Emperor Hadrian's Villa built at the peak of the Roman Empire. From here Hadrian was able to rule from outside but still near the capital city. Hadrian, who ruled from A.D. 117 to 138, sought refuge here from the political complexity of court life in Rome. While here it is worth exploring the grounds of the recently restored Villa d'Este, included in the UNESCO world heritage listings.

Other Cultural Visits

  • Keats-Shelley Memorial House
    Located on the Spanish Steps, this is the final home of John Keats. It contains an extensive collection of paintings, sculpture and manuscripts which celebrate the lives of Keats, Shelley and Byron.
  • Rome By Night Tour
    This night time tour will last approx. 2 hours on board a coach and will take in key sites: Piazza Venezia, Capitoline Hill, Jewish Quarter , Castel Sant‘Angelo, St Peter’s Basilica, Ancient Aurelian Walls framing Villa Borghese Park.
  • Free Time
    Most people choose to spend their free time in Rome either visiting the shops or relaxing in one of the many squares where you can pick up a coffee or an ice-cream and soak up the culture of the city.
