Its vivid history is marked by political rivalry and a complex succession of occupations and governments over time, leaving a legacy of magnificent old cities and architectural masterpieces - from Venice to Florence to Rome. It’s also a gem in Europe’s culture crown, giving us impressive artworks and legendary artists and composers, including Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Verdi and Puccini among them.

Hands-on exploration means deeper learning. Over more than 50 years in student travel, we have seen the results when students get up close with the subjects they’ve only read about, whether during a class trip or an individual enrollment program. We are committed to bringing these experiences to all students and offer fundraising, scholarships and financial assistance to make educational travel available to all.
Learning outside the classroom is crucial, and that’s why WorldStrides is accredited by the same educational bodies across North America and Canada that accredit K-12 schools. It allows us to offer students high school and college preparatory credit, and teachers free professional development. We even have a dedicated Curriculum and Academics Department—our own team of teachers! See our commitment to educational excellence.
