Spanish and Italian Perspectives

Spanish and Italian Perspectives

As you’re probably already aware, Spain and Italy go way back in time—in fact, all the way back to 218 BC when the Romans took over the Iberian Peninsula. Yes, there are ruins to be found in Spain, but you may find that the real draws are the stylish trappings and royal influence of dynamic cities such as Madrid, Barcelona, and Sevilla. In Italy, when you’re touring lo Stivale (the Boot), prepare yourself for charisma at every turn. Remember, this is the country responsible for the Renaissance, one of the greatest cultural movements ever. See for yourself in Rome, Florence, and the floating city of Venice.  Explore our Spanish and Italian Perspectives programs.

A chance to soak it all in Quality. Authenticity. It's what our teachers love!

We believe real immersion in a culture makes for a more authentic experience. We want you to eat like the natives do, so we take you to local restaurants. We want you to bunk down right in the center of the action, so we put you in centrally located hotels. All this means more local flavor, and more hours to enjoy it!

What our teachers and travelers say about our Spain and Italy trips?

“Italy, Spain, and France—my first trip abroad and I could not be happier. Hotel arrangements and meals were wonderful. The itinerary went without a hitch. I was most impressed with our guide, Elisabetta. She spoke all the languages fluently and was able to travel seamlessly between all three countries. My son said that he will miss her more than anything about the trip. Our teacher told us that she had tried other travel companies in the past and yours is the only company she likes to travel with. I completely understand why—WorldStrides offers great value for the price. I will definitely recommend this company to parents and other students, and sincerely hope I get the chance to travel with you again.”

—Adelaide, Colorado

“Just a great product from a great company. Their tour guides and directors are just top notch. Like any good teacher, they love what they do. Just a wonderful educational experience that really changed the lives of my students. Together with our tour director, Elizabeth, we made this a phenomenal tour and had a blast doing it. Laughter and learning at every turn! Can’t wait for my next tour.”
