Tailor-made Trips to Bay of Naples

On our school trips to the Bay of Naples you will experience the spectacular rocky coastline and some of the best scenery in Italy and the bay is home to several world renowned archaeological wonders. The area was settled first by the Greeks and then by the Romans. Mount Vesuvius dominates the Bay and is one of the few active volcanoes in Europe, resulting in school trips to the Bay of Naples being a very special experience. Its eruption covered the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum in ash, preserving life as it was almost 2000 years ago. School trips to the Bay of Naples provide students with an exceptional destination for an educational tour for students wanting a variety of excursions that educate and entertain.

Reasons to Visit

Naples

Home to many artefacts taken from Pompeii and Herculaneum. It is also being regenerated with modern art sculptures in the old squares, with metro stations being transformed into modern masterpieces.

Pompeii

One of the most famous ancient sites in the world. Almost 2000 years ago Mount Vesuvius erupted covering Pompeii in ash, preserving life as it was 2000 years ago, and excavations are ongoing. Plaster cast was poured in the holes in the ash created by bodies, and the result is realistic models of the people buried by the ash.

Roman Villa of Oplontis

An ancient map named this suburb city of Pompeii as Oplontis. Today, the modern town is known as Torre Annunziata. What remains of the Roman suburb is a well-preserved villa ten meters below the modern street level where visitors can roam a massive residential complex believed to have once belonged to Nero’s wife, Poppaea Sabina. It is of particular interest because of the frescoes beautifully preserved and vivid in colour.

Mount Vesuvius

Take a trip to the top of Mount Vesuvius, the volcano that dominates the skyline of the Amalfi Coast. You can walk to the top of the mountain, and see close up the volcano that erupted and buried Pompei almost 2000 years ago.

Pozzuoli

A spa town in the centre of the Phlegrean Fields west of Naples. An area of bubbling volcanic activity, the town of Pozzuoli has the remains of Roman market places and an amphitheatre which was the third largest in the ancient world. Here exotic animals were shipped in to the towns port and used in contests.

Herculaneum

The eruption of Vesuvius in 79AD buried this town in an airtight layer of solidified volcanic mud, unlike the volcanic ash of Pompeii which took a while to settle and become compressed. Excavations have revealed the ancient town, and have revealed facts such as diet, clothing and furniture.

Guided Visit to the Island of Capri

The island of Capri, is famed for its rugged landscape and designer boutiques and cafes. The island is characterised by the limestone Faraglioni landforms shaped over many years by the erosive power of the sea. A guided tour includes a guide, Hydrofoil from Sorrento, bus to AnaCapri, with its narrow streets and typical small squares, and port funicular. The islands famous caves are only accessible by Laserboat which can be added on to the guided day trip at an additional cost.

Traditional Pizza making

Students can watch a demonstration of pizza being made followed by a hands on workshop where they can make their own. What better way to learn about local specialities and practice language skills at the same time.

Mozzarella Farm

This family run cheese business was established over 60 years ago and has a reputation for producing world-class products. Production here combines the latest technology with traditional methods to increase the quality of the cheese without disturbing the natural equilibrium during the production process. Take part in a practical demonstration making Mozzarella from cow's
milk, and a professional and technical tasting of two specialities: Mozzarella and Caciocavallo.

Pasta Factory Visit

Students can see the production process using durum wheat semolina, to create one of Italy’s most iconic foods at this family-run business. During a guided tour of the factory, see how durum wheat is fed into the mill and separated from the bran to create semolina and then transformed into the different types of pasta from short-cut extruded pasta such as Penne, to ribbon-cut noodles such as Fettuccine. After the tour students will receive a small memento from La Fabbrica Della Pasta.

Gelato Producer

A delicious local delicacy, Gelato is creamer and more dense than ice-cream.  Students can take part in a demonstration on how Gelato is produced followed of course by the opportunity to taste the end result.

Flavian Amphitheatre Pozzuoli

The Flavian Amphitheatre, located in Pozzuoli, is the third largest Roman amphitheater in Italy. Only the Roman Colosseum and the Capuan Amphitheater are larger. It was likely built by the same architects who previously constructed the Roman Colosseum.

Phlegraean Fields

The Phlegraean Fields is an area north of Naples made up of approximately 40 ancient volcanoes and is a landscape that abounds with steaming fumaroles and boiling mud. The Phlegraean Fields are also known for the excellent examples of Bradyism, or the rising or lowering of ground levels due to fluctuations in magma chambers below ground. As recently as the 1980s, the ground rose 1.8 meters in just a couple of years. Visit the Temple of Serapis in Pozzuoli, and Monte Nuovo, Europe's youngest Volcano.

Ischia

Ischia is an island of volcanic origins in Italy's Campania region, at the northern end of the Bay of Naples. The island is easily reached by ferries and hydrofoils from Naples and is part of a large volcanic area that was very active in the distant past, and its rocks and mountains bear witness to their volcanic formation.

Caves of Pertosa

The Angel Caves of Pertosa unwind for about 2500m across tunnels and immense caverns; they are characterised by the beauty of their stalactite and stalagmite formations and for the impressive caverns, unique in Italy.
