Stunning Naples Trip Brings History to Life

Naples 3This October, a group of Year 9 and 10 students went on an exciting four-day trip to Naples. From the airport, students witness the breath-taking Herculaneum – a city now covered in volcanic pyroclastic flows.

The following day, students climbed Mount Vesuvius and were greeted by an amazing view  - the  drama of a live volcano, with smoke descending from in-between the rocks of Vesuvius as we stood on top of the mountain.

A trip to the ancient Roman city Pompeii highlighted the sheer power of Mount Vesuvius – students got to observe houses, market places and even people buried under volcanic ash and pumice – all vivid remnants of the 29 AD eruption.

Naples 2Everything seemed to be frozen in time and a tour guide provided an insight into what life might have been like in the luxurious public houses of the Roman citizens who once lived a lavish life along the edge of the volcano, enjoying the Roman baths and theatres still visible today.

Driving along the stunning Amalfi Coast allowed for visits to Salerno and other towns along the coastline where students enjoyed the hot weather which accompanied us for the entire trip. Another high light was the boat trip to the Emerald Caves.

Before heading to the airport to return home, our tour guide took us on a Naples Underground Tour, revealing the city’s 2,400-year history from the ancient Greeks to modern times.

I am proud to report that every single one of our students showed great enthusiasm for both the History of Naples and the geographical evidence around!
