Accommodation and meals during the introductory five days in London are not included but we can assist students seeking accommodation by putting them in touch with families who have had our students as paying guests in former years. Worth noting is that the fees cover a month’s free travel on public transport in Venice, (usual price per ticket £4 – average use 3 times a day, £84 a week), breakfast and a three course dinner each day and entrance fees for all museum and gallery visits included on the programme. These are small details which add up and are often not included in fees quoted on other courses.

Cookery consists of a course of 4 sessions of about 4 hours each. Each class takes place in the kitchen of the Contessa Rocca’s palazzo and ends with a convivial dinner, eating the delicious food that has been cooked with accompanying wines, as well as including a trip to the Rialto market to source the food. Gourmet Magazine rated Enrica Rocca’s” eponymous cookery school as one of the top ten schools in the world.” Students will be accepted for the cookery classes in order of application as a maximum of 20 only can be accepted with 10 per class.
A NOTE ON FEES:
“£168 – not a sum easily found by everyone” — wrote The Guardian of the Pre-University Course fees in 1968.
For over 50 years, our fees have kept roughly the same relationship to a term at an independent boarding school. Fees include return travel to Italy, accommodation in the centre of Venice, with breakfast and 3 course dinner daily. Additionally they include a supportive resident staff, a visiting faculty of distinguished lecturers coming out to Venice from England and a series of privileged and expensive private visits to palaces, museums and churches.
