Fabulous skiing, delicious food, stunning scenery and varied evening entertainment- Italy really does have everything you need for a great school trip

We have been operating tours to Italy for over 20 years and have firmly established our reputation as being outstanding experts in this area thanks to our in-depth knowledge of resorts and unrivalled relationships with suppliers.

Our Italian programme has always been highly popular thanks to our range of carefully selected resorts and high quality accommodation, combined with sunny slopes and Italian charm. Many of our resorts have a traditional feel and have retained a genuine culture, which provides an excellent experience for groups, and can be in contrast to some of the purpose-built resorts elsewhere in the Alps.

The Italian Alps are spread across a vast geographical area, from the Maritime Alps in the northwest all the way across to Piancavallo, on the far northeast corner of Italy. The differences from region to region are not only geographical, but also political, cultural and linguistic. Italians are intensely proud of their nationality and region, and local people fervently follow their own traditions and customs. Even food becomes a source of much pride – in the Valtellina they are the sole producers of the buckwheat flour found in some local dishes such as Pizzocheri, whilst the Piedmont area is the home of Gorgonzola cheese.
