Geography Trips for Schools to the
Bay of Naples, Italy

Geography Trips for Schools to the
Bay of Naples, Italy

The Italian Sorrentine Peninsula is one of the most stunning areas of Europe, displaying dramatic coastlines, deep valleys, vast lemon groves and impressive mountains, complete with magnificent views across the Bay of Naples.

Home to the mighty Mount Vesuvius, which destroyed the nearby Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum during its eruption in 79 AD, groups are drawn to the area for its volcanic activity and evidence of past eruptions. Head to Solfatara, part of the ‘supervolcano’ Campi Flegrei, for its mud puddles, steam vents and geothermal activity. But don’t think the opportunities for geography students end there!

From the Bay of Naples, there are a range of places to further students’ understanding of plate tectonics, natural hazards and the physical environment, as well as easy access to the picturesque Amalfi Coast and the beautiful Isle of Capri. Both are great opportunities to study coastal environments, rural environments and tourism.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are you responsible for?

    The DfE’s guidance for safe travel highlights the need for all those involved with the organisation and running of a tour to work together as a team. This is our aim at Rayburn Tours, to work together with our party leaders to ensure our groups' safety and peace of mind.

  • What should be included in my risk assessment?

    Start by identifying the potential hazards before deciding on the appropriate precautions to minimize the potential risk for your group. Once identified, record your findings and implement the precautions. Specific requirements are available from your Local Authority.
  • Are all of your coaches audited?

    UK coaches: Yes, all of our UK coach companies are audited by our in-house team. Copies of which can be made available to you.

We request that an audit is completed by the foreign coach company which includes confirmation of the following: they will comply with all national, local and other laws, rules and codes of practice, and that all services contracted shall be performed with all due skill, care and diligence The vehicle is fully insured for the duration of the tour.

  • Is our courier fully DBS (formerly CRB) checked?

    Our Trip Couriers, Field Study Tutors and History Tour Guides, with UK citizenship, have an enhanced DBS check. Non UK citizenship couriers cannot be checked under the DBS scheme. Rayburn Tours will seek confirmation that Trip Couriers are suitable for working with children by liaising with relevant foreign agents and monitoring group feedback.
