School trips to Sicily

The largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, Sicily’s rich cultural heritage and volcanic landscape make it a fascinating school trip for students of all ages, particularly those studying geography or classical history. 

A school trip to Sicily gives students a chance to visit one of the most active volcanoes in the world, Mt. Etna. This is a prime case study which is guaranteed to bring elements of physical geography to life outside the classroom.

For history students, few places on Earth can claim to have been ruled by so many varied external powers. Roman, Byzantine, Islamic, Norman, Spanish and French empires have all claimed Sicily at one time or another, before the island finally unified with Italy in the 19th century. Comparing the lifestyles, architecture and cultural impact of these civilisations is a unique opportunity for any class.

Whatever your focus, NST plan out bespoke itineraries to meet the needs of your class and ensure that your Sicily school trip is an unforgettable experience for both students and teachers alike.
