Italy School Performing Arts trips
The activ4 performing arts programmes in this fabulous region of Italy have been a great success for a number of reasons.
Our School Performing Arts trips to Italy are so popular simply because of the quality of our tutors. Many are requested by party leaders year after year and help in a range of capacities. They create bespoke pieces used in coursework as well as help direct innovative group productions. The tutors on our Italy School Performing Arts trips are true experts in their field.
Secondly, our Italy School Performing Arts trips are a great success due to the composition of the programme. Apart from the fabulous workshops, visits can include exciting trips to Verona with its amphitheatre and Shakespearean overtones. We also visit the unique city of Venice with its canals, gondolas and magnificent architecture. There are also the beautiful lakeside towns of Peschiera and Sermione as well as Gardaland which we are reliably informed is the 8th most popular theme park in Europe.
Where it’s held
The lake itself is fringed by small towns and Garda itself is on the eastern shore with its cobbled streets and pretty shops. Peschiera which is close to the Paradiso and Belvedere hotels is a quaint little fortress town dating back to the 1400’s. It has a lovely lakeside promenade and marina which are simply perfect on a summers evening.
The Lake Garda area provides a great base for discovering Milan and all it has to offer; The magnificent La Scala opera house, fashion shopping in La Galleria, the magnificent spectacle of Il Duomo and the historical castle. The cultural centre of the region, Verona is even closer with its spectacular Roman amphitheatre and its Shakesperian overtones with Juliet’s Balcony.
Sample Itinerary for Italy School Performing Arts trips
Depart from school and head to Dover where you will cross the channel to Calais travelling overnight to the resort of Lake Garda.
On arrival at the hotel your group will be met by a member of the Activ4 School Tours resort team who will assist you with check in. The lake is the largest in Italy, located in the North of the country situated between Venice and Milan.
Workshops will take place during the morning and afternoon and we have a variety of fantastic facilities for our performing arts groups’.The ‘New Gym’ is a fully air conditioned, sprung floor and mirrored studio. As with all areas of Activ4 School Tours programmes, evening entertainments will be carefully planned for your group and you can finish today with a quiz night.
Today you will visit one of the most exciting cities in Europe, Milan. You can start with a visit to the world famous Teatro alla Scala (Milan Opera House).We can book a fabulous behind the scenes tour of the building and design workshops, the practice rooms for the chorus, the orchestra pit and more, finishing with the opera house museum.
Then we head over to Verona; a Roman city which has many historic places of interest including the Verona Amphitheatre dating back to AD30, which can be entered for just €1.00pp, and Juliet’s famous balcony. After dinner on the last night many groups like to have a presentation evening bringing everyone together and recognising improvement and dedication throughout the tour.
Unfortunately all good things come to an end and today you return to the UK. After breakfast it’s time to check out and board your coach for the overnight journey home.
On arrival in Calais you will set sail to Dover and travel back to school. The tour officially ends when you get back to the UK, but with a trip this great we are sure that it will live long in the memory…
