Over the half term break, 58 pupils and 6 staff enjoyed great food, sunny weather and evocative remains in Rome and the Bay of Naples. There were many highlights, including visiting the richly decorated houses of Pompeii, seeing world-famous sculptures in the Capitoline and Palazzo Massimo Museums, walking in the underground warren beneath the amphitheatre at the centre of Spartacus’ uprising, and enjoying the warmth of the late-afternoon at the Canopus at Hadrian’s Villa. But perhaps the most memorable time was spent strolling down the Via dei Fori Imperiali from the Capitoline to the Colosseum at night with all the monuments lit-up to have dinner in a restaurant next to the Colosseum.
