A geography trip to Naples and Sorrento provides your students with the opportunity to learn more about life in the shadow of a volcano!

The area around Naples is regarded as one of the most stunning regions of Europe. Each location offers a wealth of options to the geographer, with dramatic landscapes and a strong volcanic presence, as well as offering the opportunity to visit Mt. Vesuvius and the buried towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum.

Sorrento is also a fantastic base for exploring the breathtaking Amalfi Coast and the enchanting Isle of Capri, both of which offer great opportunities to study coastal and rural environments, as well as tourism.

Thinking of turning this into a cross-curricular trip? Naples and Sorrento also offer plenty of exciting opportunities for Italian, classical studies and food technology.

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 …
