Trips and guided tours
LINGUA IT organises a range of guided tours and trips for its students so that they can discover the treasures of Italy.
We run day trips on Saturdays and Sundays to a range of artistic centres: Venice, Padua, Vicenza, Mantua, Parma, Modena, Bologna, Treviso, Trento and Ferrara are all in our repertoire. On these trips, you might see Giotto’s famous frescos, Palladio’s Teatro Olimpico, the Castello Estense, the Rialto Bridge and St Mark’s Square, the Palazzo Ducale in Mantua and many other masterpieces of Italian art.
The institute also organises trips over two days with a stay in a hotel (at the weekends only) to visit the byzantine mosaics of Ravenna and Fellini’s Rimini, the Veneto’s 18th century villas, the castles of Trentino, secret Tuscany and Pienza, the Palazzo Ducale in Genova and the Ligurian riviera, the islands of the Venetian lagoon…these are just some of the surprising visits you can find in our History of Art programme.
The guided tours and trips can be booked at the reception.
