Truly the Eternal City, Rome plays host to a fine range of museums and galleries, ideal for BTEC students who are interested in Art History. It is also suitable for SQA Higher & Advanced Higher studies.

The ancient city of Rome is a must visit for any young person looking to enhance their Art & Design studies through classic architecture, and painting and sculpture techniques. Simply walking through the quaint cobbled streets of the Italian capital is enough to get anyone's creative juices flowing.

If your students are interested in studying some of the great masters then then the Borghese and the National Gallery of Modern Art are the places to visit. 

However, it is probably most renowned for the dramatic and legendary Sistine Chapel, located in the Vatican museums and adjoining the magnificent and unsurpassed Basilica of San Pietro – itself worthy of a full day visit with its splendid structures and frescos.

Of course, no visit to Rome is complete without exploring the city's ancient past. We highlight recommend including a visit to the Colosseum and the Forum before you leave.
