School Trips for Classics

At WST, we offer classics school trips to some of Europe’s most fascinating ancient sites. Exploring Italy’s diverse and bloodthirsty history, students can delve into what life was really like in ancient Rome. With numerous iconic historical landmarks still intact, students can retrace the footsteps of those who lived there over 2,000 years ago, helping them to better understand the context of their studies.

We offer the following classics tours for students:

Explore Rome’s ancient sites

With Italy’s capital home to some of the world’s most famous ancient landmarks, a guided walking tour of Rome is a fantastic learning experience for classics students. Popular themes for classics tours include ancient Rome, Rome’s modern squares and Vatican City – all of which are sure to fire up your students’ imaginations and bring their study topics to life. The Colosseum and the Roman Forum are must visits for classics school trips, as the ancient landmarks were both at the heart of public life for thousands of years.

Enter a city frozen in time

The Bay of Naples offers classics students the unique opportunity to walk the streets of two ancient cities frozen in time. Pompeii and Herculaneum, both Roman settlements buried under volcanic ash from nearby Vesuvius, provide incredible insights into what life was like in this pivotal era. With the cities’ ruins preserved under the ash for centuries, classics students can wander through the cities, observing the amphitheatre, baths, temples, forum and even the houses of those who once lived there.
