An Italian Adventure

Enhancement week is always a very exciting time in the Notre Dame calendar, and 2016 was no exception! One of the highlights this year was a trip to Italy, to take in the sights, sounds and smells of this wonderful country.

The visit was jointly organised by the Geography and Classics departments so the itinerary reflected the topics studied in both of these subjects. The visitors managed to pack in trips to a number of places: the ancient Roman city of Pompeii, the Neapolitan city of Sorrento, the ruins of Herculaneum, Mount Vesuvius and the Amalfi coastline.

Forty lower sixth students went on the trip and it was so successful that plans are already underway to repeat it in 2017. Thank you to all the staff members who arranged the visit and accompanied the students.
