The Weather
Who knows! Unpredictability is the word these days. October is Rome’s
wettest month so expect some rain, often in thunderstorms, but drizzle is
possible. Temperatures should be around 20c in the day, bit like our
summer on an average day. Cooler at night, be prepared for rain and a
cool evening stroll. Below are the averages which suggest it should be
warmer and drier than it will be here! Solihull’s average July temperature is
22oC/12oC and 65mm of rain, which is Sorrento’s figures for late October.

Averages                High oC             Low oC              Rain mm

General Comment on clothing
    There is a fair amount of walking around Rome on Sunday and at
     Pompeii and Vesuvius on Tuesday and it is essential that
     comfortable footwear is worn. (Best Nike Air trainers or similar!).
    Open back Sandals and the like are most unsuitable!
    Low cut and single strap tops must not be worn while out. Short
     Shorts are also not recommended for Rome.

    All of Europe’s capitals have issues with organised thieves and you

     crowded places like Rome.

you put it while carrying it.

Keep it safely on you at all times.

On arrival at the hotel:

       Are the ladders to bunk beds in place and safely fitted.
       Do not go out onto balconies please.
       Is everything how you would expect it. If not then report it immediately.

After ‘lights out’ time.
Rooms should be locked and not opened until the morning
Students must not go around the hotel or anywhere on their own.
Never open the door unless you know who it is.
Staff will have an agreed knock and announce themselves.
Do not let late night staff into your room! Ask them to get a member of staff first.

Crossing Roads
Take responsibility for yourself. Staff are there to guide you and help, but it is your life!
Remember cars come from the opposite direction in Italy. Look LEFT first.
In Italy cars don’t stop so readily at crossing points like in the UK. Don’t assume they will

Do nothing which may put the driver off his driving. That includes crazy singing, and
especially throwing anything. Do not drop litter on the coach floor. Please remind us if
you are prone to travel sickness and alert us early. Carry a sick back and wipes with you in
your bag as well as any medicine for this condition. If the coach has a seat belt – wear it.

In Tourist Spots
All EU capitals have teams of youngsters working ‘Oliver Twist’ style scams.
Rome, Naples and Sorento are no different. Know where your money and
personal effects are. Be aware of who is around you especially in crowded

If you get separated from the main group.
Don’t panic. It would be useful to have your phone on you to contact us. Also you will be
issued with an identity card, carry it at all times. Generally best to stay where you are if it is
safe to do so. If you have concerns about people around look for a policeman or go into a
public place like a shop. Inevitably someone will miss you and the party will back track its
steps to look for you. Don’t run off in any old direction! Do not get a taxi or any other form
of transport – especially on your own. If the situation required a taxi a member of staff would
get one and pick you up in it.

       food, liquid or sleep.
      If appropriate, parents should be asked to provide suitably factored sun protection
       creams and sun hats/glasses. Group members should be advised about the dangers
       of over-exertion in the heat and of dehydration, which can cause headache, dizziness
