Walk the streets of preserved Roman cities on your classical studies school trip to Naples and Sorrento!

The historic centre of Naples is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with narrow alleyways leading to mysterious churches, catacombs and underground caves – this is an unforgettable, charismatic city your students will love.

On this classical studies school trip, students will have the opportunity to walk the streets of Pompeii and feel the brooding power of Mount Vesuvius. Pompeii and Herculaneum will allow your students to study city life in Roman Italy. And you could even choose to add an extra day to your trip to enjoy an excursion to Rome. There's also the opportunity to make this a cross-curricular trip, as Naples and Sorrento offer some great possibilities for Italian, geography and food technology.

Need help?

I always learnt more outside of the classroom than I did in a classroom setting, but as a child did not get that many opportunities. Working in school travel has given me the chance to help others like me to get the most out of their school years by travelling and learning away from the classroom.– Will Jehu Tour Consultant

Don't take our word for it …

I would definitely recommend working with the Halsbury Travel Group. They are absolutely amazing! Thank you, Rachel, for being so helpful in any way. The trip was organized to perfection and we had an amazing experience in Montpellier. It was our first time in Montpellier but we worked together before when we went to Rouen for 3 consecutive years and it was equally a big success! So, thank you again for all the details that you provided and for your patience with everything I requested. I am looking to go back to Montpellier next year and I can't wait to be working with you again! Merci beaucoup pour tout! — King Alfred’s Academy, October 2023
