Why visit Naples and Sorrento?

Discover Vesuvius

Bustling Naples sits looking out across its own bay over which Mt. Vesuvius looms. Naples is one of the oldest continually inhabited urban areas in the world and was first settled by the Greeks over 4,000 years ago. And Mt. Vesuvius has had a strong influence on the area’s history throughout.

On your school trip to Naples and Sorrento, you’ll have the opportunity to explore Pompeii or Herculaneum, which were both destroyed by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A.D. Geography groups will discover how the eruption happened and will want to find out why people still live in the shadow of such a destructive volcano.

Classical studies students will be thrilled to have the opportunity to be able to walk the streets of these Roman towns, exploring houses, shops and arenas that will help them to understand life in the Roman Empire.

Get your students talking!

Naples’ historic centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, filled with narrow alleyways that are lined with traditional shops, bars and restaurants. You’ll also stumble across numerous small, unassuming churches – peek through the door and you’ll see each boasts a spectacularly ornate interior. This is an exciting setting in which your students can use their Italian language skills to explore the culture.

Naples is also a gateway to a number of other destinations, including the elegant island of Capri. And nearby Sorrento, where most of our groups choose to stay, is a charming seaside resort known as the gateway to the Amalfi Coast and an important stop on the 19 th century Grand Tour.

Here, your students can join the Italians for the traditional passeggiata – an evening stroll through the town’s pedestrianised centre. Make sure you stop to browse some of the many lovely boutique shops, stop for ice cream and soak up the atmosphere!

Explore Italian cuisine

As well as being a fantastic base for geography school trips, Naples is also the perfect choice for a food technology school trip to Italy, as the fertile, volcanic soil means the produce from this area is unbelievable.

Many of the foods we think of as Italian actually come from Neopolitan cuisine. For example, this is the home of the pizza and so is the perfect place to perfect your pizza-making skills.

Your students will also learn how to make gelato, and they’ll find out how mozzarella and olive oil are produced. For food technology students, a school trip to Naples and Sorrento is an unmissable opportunity to be inspired by Italian cuisine.
