A famous volcano, spectacular scenery, a city frozen in time… and how could we forget to mention the excellent food? After a field trip to the Bay of Naples, your Geography students might be considering a career in volcanology, archaeology, or even professional pizza-making! Int-erupt the mundane nature of classroom learning with a packed travel itinerary that’s guaranteed to excite!


  • Pompeii
  • Cooking class & pizza making lesson
  • Herculaneum
  • Island of Capri
  • Blue Grotto
  • Monte Solaro
  • Solfatara

Your travel itinerary could look like...

Day 1

Apollo Temple, Pompeii

Transfer to Pompeii and launch into your first activity – an afternoon walking tour. The experience will give a full introduction to the city, which was one of the richest in the whole Roman Empire until the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79AD. If you want to show your students the power of nature, this ash-engulfed city is an obvious choice!

Day 2

View of Mount Vesuvius from some ruins of buildings in Naples
  • Feeling peckish? Today, your students will enjoy an authentic cooking class and pizza-making lesson, sampling beautiful home-grown produce and fresh ingredients from the local area. You can’t beat that for a second activity!

  • Once your bellies are full, head to Herculaneum. This ancient Roman town is nestled in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius and – as you might have guessed – was swallowed up by a sea of ash and pumice all those centuries ago. As you wander through the ruins, ask your students to imagine the buzz of daily life pre-79AD.

Day 3

The Blue Grotto, in italian "Grotta Azzurra", is a sea cave on the coast of the island of Capri, southern Italy
  • You’re in for a treat today! Venture to the Island of Capri, known as the jewel of the Amalfi Coast. The turquoise sea, bobbing boats and colourful houses look like they’ve been plucked out of a postcard… but better!

  • From here, your students can explore three natural formations: The Blue Grotto, Faraglioni and Monte Solaro. These beauties offer splendid photo opportunities and, of course, the chance to learn about the geography of the area.

Day 4

The Solfatara is a shallow volcanic crater at Pozzuoli, near Naples.

On your final morning, enjoy a guided tour of Solfatara. Your students might want to peg their noses for this one – this dormant volcano lets off lots of sulphurous fumes! Be awed by the jets of hot steam before transferring to Naples for your evening flight home. If your students didn’t know much about volcanoes before, they will after this amazing trip!
