Overview

Where better to take your students than the place where the observations of the great English geologist, Charles Lyell, led to the basis to modern geology?

The Bay of Naples provides a great opportunity to study key themes at GCSE and A-level, including Tectonic Processes, Tourism, Hazard Management, Coasts and Industry.

This exciting programme includes visits to Pompeii, the Phlegraean Fields, Capri and the Amalfi Coast - not to mention Mount Vesuvius!  A mild climate makes this the ideal area to visit at any time of year.

Ana is amazing and always works so hard for me especially when I have to change things all the time at the last minute. Nothing is too much trouble for her.
