What makes it worth coming on the John Hall Venice Course ?
The John Hall Venice Course is unique. The heart of the experience is living as a resident, engaging in the life of an Italian city – a huge cultural mind-opener.
Not just another art tour but also an immersion in the great European music tradition, world cinema, contemporary issues, plus the option of taking practical classes in cookery, photography, painting and Italian language. All of our lectures and presentations take place in the cosy environment of our state-of-the-art theatre.
Coming on our Venice Course takes less than 3 months out of your ‘year’. Most universities and Oxbridge colleges are enthusiastic about a gap year if time is well spent: the Venice Course is well regarded and many of our lecturers are from universities.
With a world-class team of experts, living as a resident in Venice for six weeks, and privileged private visits, it is an inspirational experience impossible to get anywhere else. Cheaper alternatives are exactly what they are, our price guarantees the best.
On a more practical note, our fees cover a 3-course supper every day (about 1000 euro over 6 weeks), travel pass on Venice transport (otherwise £5.50 per water bus journey) and other expenses usually charged as extras.
