Gap Year Courses


Our six week Gap Year Course is perfect for students and graduates aged 18 to 25 years.


No matter what your academic background, we will take you to the amazing art centres of Italy and educate you on the wonders of Italian Art.


Teaching in small groups in front of paintings and sculpture and within the buildings which house them, our tutors are passionate, well read and really know how to captivate their audience.


Course itineraries are carefully designed. You will travel through: Venice (10 nights), Bologna or Verona (4 nights), Florence (10 nights), Siena or Perugia (4 nights), Naples (4 nights) and Rome (10 nights). We make day excursions to at least six of the following towns:


  • Padua
  • Vicenza
  • Bologna
  • Ravenna
  • Modena
  • Urbino
  • Pisa
  • San Gimignano
  • Arezzo
  • Orvieto
  • Pompeii
  • Tivoli.


One student recently said:


"They say there is no such thing as a perfect moment but when we stepped into the Sistine Chapel, deserted, standing empty just for us, it wasn't just a perfect moment but a mind-blowing, perfect hour. What more can I say other than, thank you with all my heart for a truly life-changing trip."
