Art history course in Venice

(7 customer reviews)


This art history course offers you the possibility to join guided tours through the city. It’s not easy to find a city as full of artistic and architectural masterpieces as Venice. In every sestiere, campo or calle there is something that is waiting to be discovered. Thanks to the experience of our school’s art teachers, you can know in details and consequently appreciate more the works of famous painters (Bellini, Carpaccio, Tintoretto, Veronese, Tiziano, Tiepolo, Canaletto) and architecture from Palladio to Carlo Scarpa. Thus, not only the most known areas such as Saint Mark’s square and Rialto, but also churches, museums, Academies of Fine Arts, Scuole, palaces, The Ghetto, etc.

This course takes place from Monday to Friday and the lessons are held in the morning or in the afternoon for three hours. Lessons are held in Italian.

We provide our customers with different accommodation options (private rooms, shared/individual flats, hotels) near the school.

    El curso sobre Arte que hice la semana del 7 de Septiembre ha sido fantástico tanto por su contenido como por Domenico, que fué quién lo dió. El alojamiento en la residencia situada en la Isla de la Giudecca estuvo bien y lo mejor la vista de Venecia desde la misma. Todo un lujo.

    Gracias por vuestra ayuda, y vuestra profesionalidad, en la gestión de este viaje.

    Seguro que repetiré.

    I absolutely loved my stay in Italy. The school does a very serious job. Tey’re extremely organized and offer interesting free activities every afternoon – which is a great oportunity to make new friends! Both the staff the students made me feel integrated from the first day. The course itself was also very useful, I learned a lot about Venetian art and italian culture in general. Italy is the place to go if you love art and culture, and I wish I could have stayed longer. I will definetely go back one day. I have absolutely no complaints! The lady who hosted me was also very nice, and we got along really well.

    Thanks for everything!!

    Ho fatto il corso d arte a Venezia l´ultima settimana di settembre. Il professore é stato Domenico Salamino. Il corso é stato sul pittore Bellini. Come sempre Domenico mi ha sembrato meraviglioso non soltanto per tutto quello che ci ha insegnato riguardante a Bellini ma anche pero tutto quello che abbiamo imparato sul contesto storico, sociale e urbanistico del quttrocento e cinquecento veneziano. Molto bene anche il mio alloggio da Renzo. Auguri! Enrique
