The Sorrento peninsular provides an excellent opportunity to discover geography. Visits to Mount Vesuvius, Solfatara Volcano and the Roman city of Pompeii provide brilliant prospects for some of the most fascinating fieldtrips.

  • A victim of the Vesuvius eruption that took Pompeii, Herculaneum is often seen as better preserved than Pompeii.
  • The Naples National Archaeological Museum is a museum in Naples, southern Italy, at the northwest corner of the original Greek wall of the city of Neapolis. The museum contains a large collection of Roman artifacts from Pompeii, Stabiae and Herculaneum. The collection includes works of the highest quality produced in Greek, Roman and Renaissance times. It is the most important Italian archaeological museum.
  • Naples is built layer over layer out of the compacted volcanic ash and rock that Italians call tufo. Porous and easily manipulated, it was used by the Greeks, starting around 470 B.C., as they built their Neapolis; the name means “New City” and emerged over time as Napoli — or, in English, Naples. Later the Romans used the tufo quarries for an extensive system of underground aqueducts. Over the centuries a massive honeycomb of caverns and passageways has been created beneath Naples and its environs. In World War II many of the quarry shafts were enlarged and spiraling stairways were added, opening up the caverns for use as air raid shelters.
  • Take your students to a local farmhouse to visit how Mozzarella cheese is made and taste it for yourself!
