The LGS and LHS Classics Departments took 20 boys and 20 girls to the Bay of Naples over the Easter break. We ascended Mt Vesuvius, the volcano which dominates the landscape all about and was responsible for the burial of Pompeii in the terrifying eruption of AD 79. We also got to explore the winding streets of Pompeii and Herculaneum, getting a glimpse into what life was like for the average Roman citizen in the 1st century.
We also had the privilege of taking a boat trip to Capri and finally visiting Naples Archaeological Museum where we were able to see many of the artefacts uncovered in the various sites we had been to during the week. The weather was beautiful, the pupils behaved impeccably and an excellent time was had by all.
