A fun and interesting family holiday in the Bay of Naples
People have come to the Bay of Naples from far and wide for thousands of years to build cities, farm the volcanic soil or simply rest in the incredible beauty of the place. We have designed this experience for families who have an interest in Classical Civilization and would like a holiday where this passion is all part of the fun and excitement.
The region is bursting with crumbling temples, Roman ruins and ancient secrets which will come to life throughout the week. The adventure will explore from the 8th century BC when the Greeks headed West and founded their first Italian colony at Cumae to the 1st century AD when Vesuvius destroyed the port towns of Herculaneum and Pompeii at the height of their prosperity.
Moving along the pretty Amalfi coastline there will be a visit to Capri where you will learn about the gory history of Tiberius and be shown the very wall from which he would throw the unlucky subjects who displeased him. We purposely choose small, family-friendly hotels where there is space for children to run around and burn off energy and the staff are well rehearsed in creating delicious meals to be enjoyed by all ages.
With our leading guide, this hidden world of Roman ruins and ancient secrets will come alive in a way that it never could from the confines of a classroom.
