Italy, Greece, Turkey, Egypt or China? There’s no doubt that Ancient History offers some of the most alluring destinations available to school groups.

Direct experience of sites is invaluable to the way history is taught today, encouraging students to compare the written historical record with what we learn from archaeology. Our itineraries offer significant Australian Curriculum coverage of site studies, periods and people.

Our 13-17 day itineraries allow you to concentrate on a single topic, or to cover two or more countries. Popular combinations include Rome, the Cities of Vesuvius, the Western Front and Paris, covering core studies in Ancient and Modern History, 20th century Germany, Rome and the Cities of Vesuvius and two-country tours of Greece and Italy or Turkey and Germany. Our single destination tours, Egypt and Rome and the Cities of Vesuvius, allow a more in-depth coverage of important topics.

To attract a wide range of students and vary the pace of your tour, you might consider a cross-faculty tour of Italy covering Ancient History and the Visual Arts. History and English/Drama tours to Italy and England or Greece and England have also been successful.
