• Discover Italy


      Open to ALL Ontario High School Students!

      Venice, Florence, Cinque Terre, Rome, Sorrento, Naples

      Travel to the birthplace of Western culture in one of the most historically rich and romantic countries in the world. We begin our journey in a setting unlike any other – Rome. Discover the architectural marvels of the Pantheon and Coliseum. Tour the Vatican and enormous St. Peter’s Square, then head to Piazza Navona for the world’s best gelato and savour it on the Spanish Steps. Don’t forget to toss a few coins into the Trevi Fountain before you leave. Experience the Italian lifestyle along the Amalfi Coast and explore the cliffs and shores of Sorrento, Positano, and Capri lined with bright, multi-coloured houses. Explore the ruins of Pompeii buried in the volcanic ash when Mount Vesuvius erupted 1,900 years ago. Continue on to Florence to admire Michelangelo’s David at the Accademia and prepare an authentic Italian meal. Fall in love with the beautiful coastal villages of Cinque Terre (Five Lands) in the Italian region of Liguria. Stop in Verona for a visit to the backdrop of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Travel to Venice and explore the city’s many canals and bridges. Climb to the top of the San Marco Basilica, adorned, ceiling to floor, in elaborate mosaics.
