Prosperous students enjoy visit to Italian historic sites

A large group of 5th year students from St Farnan’s recently enjoyed a packed itinerary recently on their school tour to a number of locations in Italy.

The historic spots they visited included Pompeii, Capri, Sorrento and Rome.

A school spokesperson said highlights included visits to the famous historical Roman ruins in Pompeii, the blue skies and glorious views from Capri, a fun-filled afternoon of ice-cream making in Sorrento and, of course, the many beautiful sights of Rome including guided tours of Ancient Rome and the Vatican City, the Pantheon, the Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps.

The group stayed in two beautiful hotels in Sorrento and in the charming city of Fiuggi.

These proved to be an excellent and convenient base for their busy day trips to Rome.

The last day of the trip was spent in the Rainbow Magic Land Theme Park, which was hugely enjoyable, followed by some shopping time in a very chic Outlet Village nearby.

Accompanied by the tour organisers, Mr. Little and Ms. Breslin, Italian teacher, Ms. Flanagan, as well as Ms. Bracken and Mr. McGovern, the students were highly commended by hotel staff, bus drivers, and guides throughout the trip.
