After dinner at a local restaurant, the evening was spent exploring Piazza Navona, and sitting back and watching the world pass by in this busy central square.
The group said goodbye to Rome and headed for Solfatara. On arrival the group’s first visit was a guided tour of the ‘Fondo Galatea’ Working Farm, where the students got to see how the farm works and sample some of its home grown produce. They then made their way to their hotel arriving in time for their evening meal before spending the remainder of the evening exploring the Bay of Naples.
The coach departed for a morning visit of Mount Vesuvius where the group got to see the famous volcano that was responsible for destroying Pompeii and Herculaneum in 79AD. After lunch the group visited one of these sites, Herculaneum, where the students got to see perfectly preserved furniture, ornaments and wooden objects that gave them a real insight into city life in Roman Italy.
Saying goodbye to Italy, the group departed the Bay of Naples and made their way back to the UK.
