Classical Rome and Sorrento

40 students from Years II to V enjoyed the wonders of Rome and Sorrento on the Classics Department trip this Easter.

They say the best way to see a city is by foot, so with that in mind the students marched stoically from the Spanish Steps to the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon and the Piazza Novona – and that was just day one!  Day two encompassed the breath-taking Vatican Museums and the tremendous Colosseum, and the final two days were spent visiting the hauntingly beautiful ruins of Pompeii from our base in Sorrento and climbing the devastating Mount Vesuvius. Particular highlights for our students appear to have been the miraculous Sistine Chapel in the Vatican, painted by Michelangelo, and Pompeii, where our students enjoyed having the freedom to enjoy exploring this fabulous World Heritage Site in their own groups.

The students were a pleasure to supervise, receiving praise from hotel staff, and they have made experiences and memories they will never forget. Those who threw a coin in the Trevi Fountain will be certainly be guaranteed a return to Rome…
