Geography in Italy

The Italian Sorrentine Peninsula is one of the most stunning areas of Europe, displaying dramatic coastlines, deep valleys, vast lemon groves and impressive mountains showcasing magnificent views across the Bay of Naples. Dominated by the peaks of Mount Vesuvius, one of the world’s most active volcanoes, Italy’s Bay of Naples is an inspiring destination.

The Bay of Naples provides a great opportunity to study key themes at GCSE and A-level, including Tectonic Processes, Tourism, Hazard Management, Coasts and Industry. This exciting programme includes visits to Pompeii, the Phlegraean Fields, Capri and the Amalfi Coast - not to mention Mount Vesuvius!

This well-established region of geographical study, with its Roman ruins and dramatic coastline, captures the imagination of all who travel there. A mild climate makes this the ideal area to visit at any time of year.
