Eli Moody, 17, and Ric Wallis, 18, are both Travel and Tourism students and they snapped up the chance of spending 10 days gaining valuable work experience through Al Fresco holidays.

Eli, from Great Harwood, and Ric, from Chorley, are both studying a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Travel and Tourism Diploma and they loved the experience so much that Eli has stayed on until the end of June.

“We carried out tasks such as reception duty and preparing accommodation for new arrivals,” said Ric.

“There was sweeping and mopping floors but we also gave travel advice on the area to guests as well as having free time to see some of Italy for ourselves.”

Eli added: “It’s a beautiful place and we loved being by the lake at night and seeing the flickering lights of the small towns in the distance.”
