The Bay of Naples region is a perfect destination for groups seeking world famous historic sites, unbeatable cuisine and dramatic landscapes, all within your budget.

Everywhere they turn, your students will be surrounded by a classroom brought to life. From preserved Roman ruins of Pompeii, to the Pertosa limestone caves, there are so many things to do and see.

Bay of Naples is ideal for students of geology, geography, history, classics or simply any student fascinated by Mount Vesuvius, the only active volcano on mainland Europe.

Day 1

Exploring Naples

Arrive in Naples airport ready to experience ‘La Dolce Vita’.

Pay a visit to the Naples Archaeological Museum, which is home to many ancient Greek and Roman antiquities. Many of these pieces of art, mosaics and sculptures were excavated from the nearby ruins of Herculaneum and Pompeii.

Day 2

Mount Vesuvius and Pompeii

Mount Vesuvius is the only volcano to have erupted on mainland Europe in the last 100 years.

Created by the convergence of the African and Eurasian tectonic plates, the volcanic activity here is closely monitored by volcanologists to ensure the safety of residents living on its slopes.

Alpine guides will show you the main crater, explain the volcano’s geography and what it is like to live in the shadow of an active volcano.

The ancient Roman city of Pompeii was buried in the eruption of Vesuvius in 79AD, and preserved for all to see. History and physical geography students alike will be thrilled to see this UNESCO world heritage site for themselves.

Day 3

Pertosa Limestone Caves and Tenuta Buffalo Farm

There is so much to see in the Bay of Naples region but today your trip will see another side to Italy, underground!

Your guided visit to the Pertosa Limestone Caves includes a short boat trip onto the subterranean lake and into the otherworldly caverns carved in the porous rock. You don’t have to love geology to be inspired by these magnificent stalactites and stalagmites in the dark caves.

A trip to Italy not complete without ‘Dining Like a Local’. We have a plethora of foodie choices on any Italy school trip and on this particular itinerary we’re suggesting a visit to the Tenuta Buffalo Farm.

Here, your students will learn about the production of Buffalo Mozzarella. Your guide will explain about the processes and even let you taste some of the food grown on the farm.

Day 4

After a busy and exciting school trip in Italy, it will be time to say ‘arrivederci!’ to your home for the last few days.

Head to the airport to pick up any last minute souvenirs and depart Naples… until next time!

Trip Notes:

This trip price is based on 47 students and 5 teachers (free places), staying in hostel style accommodation close to key sites in the itinerary. Our prices also include the cost of a guide for the duration of your visit.

Naples: An underground city in more ways than one

Napoli, Italy's third-largest metropolis, is a city of contrasts. Modern and ancient, impressive and yet dilapidated, cultured and chaotic. An ideal place for an unforgettable school trip.
