Tuesday 15th – Friday 18th November 2016 saw the completion of the annual Travel and Tourism Event Management trip. This year the students decided to travel on a two centre break to Rome and Sorrento. A group of 30 intrepid travellers accompanied by Mrs Irwin, Miss Rafferty, Mr Richardson and Mr McCourt set off for Italy in the small hours of Tuesday morning. A packed and exhausting itinerary followed with the group visiting The Colosseum, The Roman Forum, The Time Elevator, The Vatican Museums, St Peter’s Basilica, Piazza Navona, The Pantheon and the Spanish Steps in two days! An early start on Wednesday was needed as the group set off to Sorrento stopping at Pompeii on the way. A guided tour of both Pompeii and Sorrento ensured everyone thoroughly enjoyed the historic and beautiful locations and of course the lemon gelato in Sorrento was out of this world! The final visit was to Solfatara, not the most famous but the most dangerous volcano in Italy. The Geography teachers and students definitely loved the experience of standing in a volcanic crater as steam billowed out and mud and water bubbled around them! It was truly spectacular. This was a wonderful trip both educational and fun and the 21 degree heat didn’t spoil it either!
