School Classics Trips to
Rome, Italy

Embarking on a school classics trip to Rome, your group will have the oppotunity to explore one of the most ancient cities in Europe, steeped in over 3,000 years of history, culture and architecture.

Steeped with intrigue and drama, a visit to the Eternal City is an excellent way of introducing your students to the delicate link between Roman culture as it is written in drama and play, as well as the expression of this culture that’s still demonstrated today in its architecture.

As well as a School Classics trip destination, it can also bring a context to studying the influence of Rome on Britain and Western Europe. In essence, Rome is truly an enriching experience for Classics students of all ages and can develop an understanding of the social and cultural contexts of Roman society.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What happens if we are unable to complete our planned excursions whilst in Italy?

    With excellent local knowledge, our internal Italian specialists, in conjunction with our Italian agents, will also be on hand to discuss alternative excursions and activities and changes to your itinerary should they be required. Experience has shown us that, during times of disruption, with some minor changes we are able to carry out the majority of our itineraries.
  • Is our courier fully DBS (formerly CRB) checked?

    Our Trip Couriers, Field Study Tutors and History Tour Guides, with UK citizenship, have an enhanced DBS check. Non UK citizenship couriers cannot be checked under the DBS scheme. Rayburn Tours will seek confirmation that Trip Couriers are suitable for working with children by liaising with relevant foreign agents and monitoring group feedback.

  • Can I talk to Rayburn Tours whilst out on tour?

    Yes, a 24-hour emergency phone number will be provided in your final documents pack and one of our experienced members of staff will be happy to help with any problems you have whilst out on tour.

  • Do your hotels comply with our Local Authority’s guidelines?

    All hotels are audited to standards set by the School Travel Forum (STF), this criteria is based on information and guidance from educational authorities. Whilst local laws and standards have to be taken into consideration, as they may differ from country to country, our standards do not. We are happy to provide copies of our hotel audits should you wish to see them.
