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.

EXTENSION OF THE COURSE IN FLORENCE

Friday 10 to Friday 17 MARCH     £2,325

 

EXTENSION OF THE COURSE IN ROME  

Friday 17 to Friday 24 MARCH     £2,460

ITALIAN CLASSES     £322

 

COOKERY CLASSES – CUCINA ITALIANA     £600

 

Cookery consists of a course of 4 sessions of about 4 hours each. Each class takes place in Contessa Rocca's palazzo kitchen and ends with a convivial dinner, eating the delicious food that has been cooked with accompanying wines, as well which includes 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.

Fees during the optional extensions include travel from Venice to Florence, Florence to Rome, accommodation, breakfast, dinner, the lectures and/or on-site visits; in Florence, two life-drawing classes, Private visit to the Accademia, and visit to Renaissance villa and garden; in Rome, excursion to Villa D’Este and lunch at the Ristorante Sibilla in Tivoli and Private visits to Villa Borghese Gallery, The Keats-Shelley Memorial House and the Vatican Museums including Raphael’s Stanze and the Sistine Chapel.

The Florence and Rome Extensions We regard the extensions as an important part of the Course. They are offered as an option, on grounds of cost and possible other commitments. To see Florence and Rome is a major part of the Italian experience. Their individual and different identities are striking after Venice, and Venice in retrospect comes into special focus after Florence and Rome. Our most privileged (and expensive) private visits are in Florence and Rome.

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.
