Year 12 & 13 Bay of Naples Trip July 2017

At the beginning of the summer holidays, Year 12
and 13’s went on a 6th Form field trip to the Bay
of Naples, Italy. We had the luxury of flying which
meant they spent the first day in Rome exploring the
Colosseum and the streets surrounding it. In the early
evening we set of to Sorrento on a coach and saw
fantastic views on the way such as Mt Vesuvius and
the Bay of Naples.

Day 2 involved a day out in Pompeii, exploring the
ancient city, its ruins, plaster cast bodies and the close
up view of Mt Vesuvius. For lunch the group went to
Sorrento eating fresh pasta overlooking the coastline.
The rest of the day was spent in the sea swimming
and enjoying the sun. Here there was an opportunity
to see how Rip Raps/Rock Armours and Off-Shore
Reefs can be turned into man-made beaches. Dinner
was equally as good, with the group dressed up
eating fresh Italian pizza at a local restaurant in its
birthplace, Naples.

The next day was spent in the historic and picturesque
cliff side town of Amalfi where sea defences, stacks
and headlands were visible all around while enjoying
the sea and sun. There was also a trip to Grotto Dello
Smeraldo where they went on a small boat ride in an
emerald cave taking in the turquoise waters.
Herculaneum was day 4. Similar to Pompeii it had
ruins from the volcanic explosion however volcanic
ash and sediment was still evident meaning 75%
of the ancient town is still buried. Herculaneum
appeared to be stuck in time with bodies of those
waiting to be evacuated still present and buildings
largely intact. The group arrived home late evening,
with a smooth flight and coach ride back to school
to be greeted by happy parents. All enjoyed the
experience, the geography, views, food, sea and sun
and are looking forward to a similar trip next year.
