Where Vesuvius steals the limelight
From £415pp i

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.

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. Coupled with the fabled Isle of Capri and Amalfi Coast, the scent of lemon groves and rhythms of Mediterranean life can’t help but draw you in.

Experience has shown us that, during times of disruption, with some minor changes we are able to carry out the majority of our itineraries.

  • Is all of your accommodation audited in advance?

    Yes, all of our accommodation is audited prior to us offering it to a group. The criterion of these audits is governed by the School Travel Forum (STF). It is important to remember that each country is governed by their own standards and laws and these may differ from UK law. However, we require our accommodation to meet our standards as a minimum. We work with the hotels and agents to endeavour to ensure that our standards are met.

    Throughout your tour you will have 24-hour access to a member of our team, if you do have any concerns or require any assistance. We also have a strong relationship with our agent in Italy, therefore in the event of any disruption to your tour we will liaise with them promptly to ensure that they can offer us all the local support and assistance we need. This local knowledge and direct communication means that in the event that you are directly affected by an eruption we will be on hand to offer a calm, efficient evacuation to safety, if required. We have access to accommodation in different locations, should your group need to be relocated.

    Should your return be affected we will be on hand to offer support and assistance until your group is safely back in the UK. We have 24-hour contact available with the majority of airlines and we have experienced the high level of support they offer during the repatriation process.
