Gad’s Seniors are spending a week in Italy, finding out more the country’s culture, history – and of course, food!
The 25-strong Y10 and 11 group, and their teachers’ adventure started in the capital, where they visited the home of the Pope, The Vatican City, former Roman temple, The Pantheon, Rome’s largest Baroque fountain, Trevi Fountain and of course the Spanish Steps.
Next, they are heading South to Naples, where they will visit Pompei in the Campania region which is overlooked by the active volcano at Vesuvius.
The Gad’s contingent will travel along the The Amalfi Coast, a 50km stretch of coastline along the southern edge of Italy’s Sorrentine Peninsula. It features sheer cliffs and a rugged shoreline dotted with small beaches and pastel-colored fishing villages. The coastal road between the port city of Salerno and clifftop Sorrento winds past grand villas, terraced vineyards and cliffside lemon groves.
Group leader, Maths teacher, Miss Sameena Rana is pleased to report good behaviour, a thirst for learning more about all the sights – and a hunger for pizza, pizza and more pizza!Posted on
