Educational Tours

An educational experience for your school group they'll never forget.

Mario, Viny and Gianni Vitellone share their love, passion and expert knowledge of Italy to ensure your school group has a truly memorable experience. We draw from our many years of teaching as well as over 15 years of experience as tour leaders for both adult and school groups to give you a comprehensive and enjoyable trip.

As your personal guides and tour organisers, we are bi-lingual, have studied in Italy and have extensive knowledge of the history, culture and the Italian way of life. Our tours can focus on many educational areas such as History, Arts, Food, Music or Archeological depending on requests made by individual schools.

One of the signature features of our school tours program is that a member of our team will personally guide your group for the duration of the tour. Our attention to detail and hands-on approach, means that all aspects of the itinerary are carefully managed, making the experience come alive, whilst eliminating the pressures on teachers during the tour.

Independent Travel

We also provide a variety of personalised itineraries to tailor for the specific requirements of schools for independent travel. With our fully accredited travel arm: Pronto Travel, we supply a comprehensive package including Flights, Travel Insurance, Accommodation, Transport, Guided Tours, Educational Workshops and any other travel needs.

Sister School Program

As part of your Italy tour, we can include your sister school as part of your overall itinerary. This would include visits to other destinations that your group would like to visit.
