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.

The driver came in time, the trip was a succes for us, even we didn’t see any alpine guide how we thought. There are alpine guides on the mountain in the meeting point, but they are for everybody, not just for your group. Is different organised compared with trips on Etna. Anyway it was so good the trip and the view from Vesuvio to Naples bay, Capri and Sorrento coast is amazing, I could get the trip again!

issue with communication, on Get your Guide it said 12:30 - 1 pick up. the day before I received a text saying to be there at the meeting spot at two. The woman I interacted with on the phone was very blunt and aggressive, sending messages in full caps which to me felt like she was shouting at me for simply asking a question.

Overall very interesting. The ascent is already difficult because the path is slippery and rocky. Man has 2 hours and a guide who tells a little something. I was annoyed that we had to wait another 10 minutes downstairs before we could even go up and we couldn't go 2 minutes earlier, even when we explained to the attendant that we weren't the fastest. When we were finally on our way, a bus came and everyone was able to start walking immediately, which made the ascent even more difficult, since there are always inconsiderate people.
