"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."
LF Gap Year Course
The Northern Italy Tour is a rare and special thing. It is an eclectic combination of holiday, learning and travel which aims to give students an enlightening two weeks.
The course places the painting, architecture and sculpture of Italy within the broader context of Western Civilization while opening the eyes of students to art. Within the two weeks students will have a taster of Italian lifestyle and will enjoy Italian food, wine and music in the balmy summer heat. You will spend 5 nights in Venice, 5 nights in Florence and 4 in Rome, with free time built into the programme in every city.
Students should drop any ideas they have about teachers versus students, as do all our tutors - this is not a 'school trip'. Our brilliant tutors are dynamic, enthusiastic experts from various academic fields. They roll back the disciplines of formal education and provide an inter-disciplinary approach that includes (to name a few) philosophy, history, theology and mythology.
Come and join us in Italy for two weeks down the peninsula with a well structured and fabulous programme of art, architecture and Italian fun.
