Student trips to Rome
The Eternal City
The heart of the Roman Empire, the seat of the Roman Catholic Church and a style capital for 21st century aesthetics, Rome has many faces from many ages.
Founded in 753 BC, by 120 AD Rome’s population had grown to over one million, reflecting the city’s vital importance and the power its Empire had achieved.
The decline of the Roman Empire and the invasion of the Germanic tribes had a dramatic and traumatic impact on the city, yet Rome rose again during the Renaissance.
Michelangelo, Raphael, Donatello and many others created a new principal in art and architectural expression.
The great monuments of an ancient civilisation, the artist treasures of the Renaissance and the vibrant cosmopolitan élan of a stylish contemporary capital, all combine to make Rome a superb destination for an educational trip
Equity has selected a range of excursions for college and university trips that ensure students get the most of what Rome has to offer.

Vatican and the Sistine Chapel
Vatican City is the location of the Pope’s residence, and is the smallest internationally recognised independent city in the world, by both area and population. Amongst the cultural sites in the city lies the Sistine Chapel – famous for its architecture and decoration and the site of the Papal Conclave. Part of the beautiful artwork within the Chapel is the painted ceiling by Renaissance artist Michelangelo.
Enchanting history and complex architecture, the Colsseum – built in the 1st century – proudly stands in the heart of Rome, attracting millions of tourists per year. The largest amphitheatre in the world and considered to be one of the greatest works of Roman architecture, the Colosseum, originally used for gladiatorial shows, really is a show in itself, an icon for Imperial Rome.
Castel Sant’Angelo is a towering, cylindrical building in the heart of Rome. This remarkable castle, originally commissioned by the Roman Emperor Hadrian, has a fascinating history and was once the tallest building in Rome. Now a museum, explore all five floors and don’t miss fantastic panoramic views of the city from the top!
The building that stands today was completed in 126AD by the emperor Hadrian and is one of the best-preserved of all Ancient Roman buildings.
