School Classical Studies Trip to Naples and Sorrento

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
