Student Trips to Sicily

The beautiful island of Sicily is one of the jewels of the Mediterranean. The island offers a unique landscape and breath-taking scenery that will appeal to any visitor on a student trip to Sicily. From rolling hills and mountains, to its infamous volcanoes and the crystal-clear seas that surround it, Sicily has an irresistible beauty that encourages visitors to come back year after year.

For students of geography and classical history, there’s a wealth of learning opportunities that simply must be explored.  With one of the most active volcanoes in the world, Mount Etna, this provides students with the opportunity to learn more about the physical geography of the area.  

For students of classics and ancient history, there’s an assortment of ruins and monuments that will bring to life the periods during which Sicily was under the rule of Roman, Byzantine, Islamic, Norman, Spanish and French empires.

Due to the mix of influences, Sicily has a culture and heritage all of its own. From its history, architecture and gastronomy, there’s nothing quite like experiencing Sicily as a college or sixth form student.

Sicily is the largest of the Mediterranean islands and has a precious geographical diversity. Its coastline and unspoilt sea-beds combined with fertile volcanic slopes, make it an ideal location for a geography field trip.

Classics & Ancient History

The enchanting land where Archimedes taught and Saint Paul preached was a Greek colony, a Roman province, an Arab emirate and a Norman kingdom. All left traces of their presence in the wealth of monuments and artefacts, which delights ancient history student groups today.
