Day 1:
On arrival at Naples airport, you will board the coach, where you will head to your accommodation. Enroute you may have the chance to visit Naples, where you can visit the Underground Cisterns and enjoy a guided tour of Naples. Once you arrive at your accommodation you will check in and enjoy an evening meal.

After a visit to Mount Vesuvius itself, students will then visit one of the sites of its most famous eruption, Pompeii. Groups will spend the afternoon exploring the streets and buildings of historic Pompeii, which were preserved in time under volcanic rock and hardened lava for decades. You will finish off the day by returning to your accommodation for your evening meal.
