The perfect place to study Italy’s turbulent past
From £599pp i

With a history that’s as monumental as the Colosseum, Rome’s the perfect place to study Italy’s turbulent past. Have your students delve deeper into the story with exploration into less commonly known war figures like Mussolini, who led an initially neutral Italy to embrace the Fascist Party. Learn about their connection to Nazism and visit key sites where it all unfolded! On a history trip to Rome, you’ll delve deep into the roots of the movement and identify typical Fascist architecture, constructed to imitate the style of the Roman Empire in an effort to recreate a sense of power and prestige.

Awash with classical ruins, world-renowned art and timeless beauty, Rome is a city that’s all about the grandeur, and its rich and complex history is no different! Compact enough to walk between sites, you’ll waste no time in exploring the city’s cultural riches…
