Our tour experts can tailor your tour to include official guides of one of the world’s most engrossing archaeological experiences. Students can also visit Herculaneum; the sister-site of Pompeii. Herculaneum was buried in molten lava from Mount Vesuvius back in AD 79, instead of the ash that covered Pompeii. This protected site for centuries, meaning priceless details, ranging from buildings to artworks, can still be seen today.

  • Guided tour of Pompeii
  • Mount Vesuvius
  • Amalfi Coast (Amalfi to Positano)

Depart from your UK airport bound for Italy. On arrival at your destination airport you will be greeted by an Activ4 School Tours Representative and escorted to the local coach for your transfer. After check-in, head to the outside restaurant for dinner. After dinner you have a free evening to perhaps take a stroll around the town.

Day 2 Pompeii, Vesuvius

This morning you’ll head into Pompeii, one of the world’s most engrossing archaeological experiences. An official guide will show you the sights to ensure you make the most of your visit; peering into humble shops and homes and viewing the villas of the city’s wealthiest families. In the afternoon you’ll be heading to Vesuvius, the only active volcano in mainland Europe.

Day 3 Amalfi Coast, Positano

Today you will see the Amalfi Coast. It is hard to believe that this pretty little town was once a maritime superpower with a population of more than 70,000. You will travel by coach to Positano, taking in stunning views of the coast. Positano is known as the vertical town with its white, pink and yellow Mediterranean houses built into the landscape.

Day 4 Herculaneum, Citta della Scienza’s Science Centre

This morning you will visit Herculaneum; the sister-site of Pompeii. This protected the site for centuries, meaning priceless details, ranging from buildings to artworks, can still be seen today. Following a morning at Herculaneum, you will travel to Naples to visit Citta della Scienza’s Science Centre. The Science Centre includes the Corporea (Human Body Museum) and a 3D Planetarium.

Day 5 Flight Home

Unfortunately today you return home. There may be just enough to enjoy a gelato, or perhaps a slice of pizza. Your coach will then take you to the airport. The tour officially ends when you get back to the UK, but with a trip this great we are sure that it will live long in the memory.
