School 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.

Top Tips from Our Travel Experts

"Not to be missed is Mount Vesuvius which is the only active volcano on the mainland of Europe. At present dormant, a guided walk will take you to the rim of the crater and will be a unique experience as well as The Phlegraean Fields made up of approximately 40 ancient volcanoes with a landscape that abounds with steaming fumaroles and boiling mud. Guides are highly recommended for all archaeological sites (e.g. Vesuvius, Pompeii and Herculaneum) who will then also assist with communicating with the visit and coach drivers who speak very basic English. Please note you cannot group Pompeii and Herculaneum as a full day excursion due to their locations but you can group Herculaneum and Vesuvius."
