La Fabbrica Della Pasta di Gragnano

During this fascinating visit, your students will learn about the ancient art of making pasta, which has a very long tradition in Gragnano. The location of this small town, between the sea and the mountains, has provided the ideal climate for producing and drying pasta for over 500 years. Here, your students can see the production process during a 30 minute guided tour of the factory before receiving a small memento of their visit.

Naples Underground Tour & Museum

There is an entire underground city below Naples - a series of ancient aqueducts that were eventually shut down and used as a bomb shelter during World War II. You can go down a square flight of steps put in place by Mussolini leading down 40m into an actual air raid shelter. The museum is in a huge underground sandstone quarry and contains incredible artefacts and objects found during more than 50 years of exploring the labyrinth beneath Naples.

Ice Cream Factory - Workshop

During this fascinating visit, your students will get to take part in an hour-long workshop, where they will learn how to make the delicious ice cream that Italy is famous for!
