Geography school trips to the
The Bay of Naples, Italy

Awash with rugged coastlines, azure seas and age-old cities, the Bay of Naples is one of the most beautiful corners of Europe.

A coastal strip of terraced farmland, cliff-side settlements and archaeological riches becomes your backdrop, whilst the mighty Mount Vesuvius looms over the ancient ruins of Pompeii. Rumbling with volcanic activity and evidence of past eruptions, this is one for lovers of the hot stuff.

Vesuvius often steals the limelight (and with good reason), where its crater is a haven of sulphur-emitting fumaroles and solidified lava, pumice and tuffs. You’ll get your fill of all things volcanic, as well as gain a deeper understanding about plate tectonics, natural hazards and the physical environment. Still not enough? Head to the Campi Flegrei area for bubbling mud puddles and geothermal galore to complete your school geography trip to the Bay of Naples.

Whilst you’re here, visit the fabled Isle of Capri and the enchanting Amalfi Coast, where the scent of lemon groves and rhythms of Mediterranean life can’t help but draw you in.

  • 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.
