Sorrento and the Amalfi coast offers opportunities to explore a vast array of geographical curriculum areas including plate tectonics, natural hazards, coastal and tourism management to name but a few. The stunning setting of the Bay of Naples with towering cliffs overlooking villages dotted along the coastline has an enduring appeal. This is further enhanced by the presence of the towering and imposing Mount Vesuvius, casting an intriguing shadow over the landscape it has shaped for millennia.
