Tours for Students in Verona
The school trip is an important learning experience. During the educational tour students see first-hand what they have learned in class and from books. Experience and direct involvement allow to deepen and establish concepts and theoretical notions for an easier and lasting knowledge. As tour guides we have been involved in teaching schools for decades. Our itineraries for educational travel are based on the school programs of history, art and literature. We pay great attention to language, appropriate to the age and background of the students, and to comprehension and interactivity, with concrete examples and practical activities. All of our educational tours can make a brief stop at Juliet's house. However, the story can become the subject of an itinerary that retraces the plot through historical places and events in Verona, and reveals the birth of the legend from the original by Luigi da Porto to the theatrical version by William Shakespeare. To complete the guided tour, there are many practical and playful educational activities to learn while having fun. Children will be able to assemble their own invincible gladiator, make a Roman mosaic, play with ancient masks or go down the Adige River in an inflatable boat to discover a new perspective on the city.
