School Trips to Bay of Naples, Pompeii & Sorrento

A beautiful area of dramatic extremes, the Bay of Naples & Sorrento is home to sheer mountains, beautiful coastal plains and stunning islands, as well as big-city life and traditional villages. Nearly two thousand years ago, a large area of the Bay of Naples was swept away by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, preserving the towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum, which provide an invaluable opportunity to uncover the Roman way of life through a wide array of educational excursions.

Perhaps it's no surprise that school trips to Mount Vesuvius, the Bay of Naples, Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast are some of most commonly requested destinations by Party Leaders. Great for Geography, Classics and Food & Nutrition, we can highly recommend an educational tour to this stunning southern region of Italy.

    Why choose Bay of Naples?

  • Diverse areas of natural beauty
  • Rich history
  • Unique opportunity to explore the Roman way of life

Below is a sample of excursions Equity can organise for your school trip to the Bay of Naples & Sorrento - for subject specific excursions have a look at the
recommended educational trips for Bay of Naples & Sorrento


One of the world’s most striking archaeological sites, the ancient city of Pompeii was buried in 79 AD, following a series of volcanic eruptions by nearby Mount Vesuvius. Study the UNESCO-listed excavations, where you’ll find fossils, well-preserved ruins and the remnants of ancient lava flows.


Herculaneum was an ancient Roman settlement, buried during the same series of volcanic eruptions that destroyed Pompeii in 79 AD. The ancient municipality was buried deeper than its neighbouring towns, leaving behind some of the best-preserved ruins in the Bay of Naples. Highlights of the Herculaneum Archaeological Site include Terme Maschili; the Central Baths and the Fornici; a series of port warehouses which hold the skeletal remains of workers and soldiers.


The stunning island of Capri, found off the coast of the Bay of Naples is famed for its crystal clear waters, rugged landscape and world famous Blue Grotto caves. Take a trip to the island of Capri on board a guided minibus and boat tour. The minibus will take you from Capri Port to Anacapri before going back down to Capri. This island offers a deeper understanding of coastal erosion and geomorphology, making it ideal for a geography trip excursion.

Working Farm

Visit an Italian working farm for a fascinating demonstration of how olive oil and mozzarella cheese is produced. After the detailed and factual demonstration your group will have the chance to enjoy and taste some of the traditional cheeses on offer.

Pizza Making

Head to a local pizzeria for an authentic pizza making demonstration. Your students will learn the basics of creating a traditional Italian pizza and get the opportunity to add their own ingredients, before tasting the final product. Who doesn't love pizza?!

Pasta Making

Alongside pizza and ice cream, pasta is one of Italy’s most cherished dishes. At an organised local restaurant, your students will have the chance to create their own authentic pasta dishes, followed by sampling some pasta and their own tasty creations.

Ice Cream Parlour

Watch a demonstration on how to make Italy's most beloved frozen dessert; ice cream, otherwise known locally as gelato, before indulging in a tasting session - yum!

Coffee Roasting House

Visit a coffee roasting house for an excellent demonstration of how iconic Italian coffee is produced. For students who don't mind the strong taste of coffee, they can taste test a traditional espresso.

Roman Villa of Oplontis

This enormous and partially-excavated villa complex is believed to have belonged to the wife of Nero. Villa Oplontis was buried in the 79 AD volcanic eruptions and not rediscovered until the 18th century. Expect extensive gardens, lavish frescoes and more than a hundred well-preserved rooms to explore - a great excursion to experience what life was like during the era of the Roman Empire.

Naples City

An important centre of Greek and Roman culture, Naples is one of the world’s oldest continuously inhabited cities. Visit key sites such as the Underground Archaeological Museum of Naples and explore the ancient streets of the Centro Storico – a UNESCO World Heritage site, which is also the largest historic centre in Europe.

Mount Vesuvius

Mount Vesuvius is known for its volcanic eruption in 79 AD that left devastating effects on the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum and has erupted many times since. Your pupils can study the geography and geology of this active volcano on a school trip.


Founded in the 6th century BC, Paestum was a major city of ancient Greece. Abandoned after a series of raids and malaria epidemics, it contains some of the world’s best-preserved Greek temples.
