“Having the opportunity to spend four weeks in Venice was an incredible experience and one that I will cherish forever. Through the guidance of IED and our wonderful teachers we were able to go beyond what the normal tourist would see. We visited amazing churches, viewed astonishing works of art, marvelled at the architecture and sheer beauty of Venice, attended the Biennale Architettura 2014, explored the backstreets of Venice, travelled to the islands and much more. Some of the many highlights for me were to visit the Scuola Grande of Saint Roch, San Marco’s, to discover the lions of Venice and their significance, travelling on the vaporetta on the busy canals, visiting Peggy Guggenheim’s Museum and Galleria Dell Accademia. Our teachers were wonderful, very knowledgeable and infinitely patient, particularly with us getting lost. Thank you to Aim and IED for this wonderful experience.”
