Full description
Your tour will begin from the historical city center of Naples, from where you will head to Mount Vesuvius. This tour provides you with a unique opportunity to reach the most characteristic locations of this historic region.

After about 1 hour of driving through the city, you will begin to pass through a national park that features amazing views of the Bay of Naples. You will ascend to 1,000 meters in your bus, from where you will take a walking path up to the crater. Once here you can admire breathtaking views, and learn more about local geology from your volcanological guide.

You can listen to explanations about the many transformations of the mountain due to its volcanic nature from a professional alpine guide, who will provide great insight as to how and why this great nature force was able to destroy Pompeii and Herculaneum. You will then have time to walk around and take pictures before re-boarding your bus and returning to Naples.

Extreme winds at the peak of Vesuvius meant our tour had to be cut short, but thanks to the extraordinary transparency, fairness and professionalism of the organiser, I didnt walk away disappointed. They even organised a partial refund without being asked, which was processed within a day. Extra services, such as bag storage at the meeting point were a great help, and I appreciate her common sense realisation that €15 (€5 each) to store our rucksacks for 4 hours is excessive, especially after already paying over €80 for the excursion, so only charging us for one. This, and lots of other subtle gestures, showed that they care about hospitality and going the extra mile.

Martina, our local contact tried very hard to coordinate us. Our driver in turn did his job unmotivated. Instead of 2 hours on site, he wanted to collect us again after 1 hour 20. At the volcano you should join a guide. Unfortunately, there was currently only one Italian-speaking group, so there was no English-speaking guide in the short time. We were not dropped back at our starting point, but about one and a half kilometers away at the port. The volcano itself was very fascinating to see. Despite the initial clouds, it cleared up and was very impressive.
