  • Hike on Mount Vesuvius
  • Enjoy a breaktaking view over the bay of Naples
  • Find out more about the history of Mount Vesuvius
Full description
Visit the only active volcano in mainland Europe that dominates the bay of Naples. Mount Vesuvius is best known for its eruption in 79 AD that led to the burying and destruction of the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. It is estimated that thousands of Romans lost their lives during the eruption as the volcano turned the idyllic, overgrown landscape into sand and ashes within hours. It is exactly this ash which preserved and protected the vibrant city of Pompeii situated at the volcano’s feet until future archaeologists unearthed this snapshot in time. The drive will take you up Mount Vesuvius to 1000 meters from where, if you wish, you can walk up to the crater and meet an authorized Alpine guide who will answer all of your questions.

A great trip for those who don’t want to hike the whole way up. 1000ft by air conditioned bus then a walk to the top. Still quite challenging in the heat but manageable. Amazing views from the top. Our guide Rosella was delightful. Full of interesting info throughout the journey and very warm and friendly. Would recommend.

A Hot Day up the Volcano

A superb visit to mount Vesuvius with a bit of a hike to the top - very exhilarating with superb views on a very hot day. Awaresome (in the correct use of the word) views into the crater. Only downside is again time restrictions - you only really get time to get to the top, have a look and get back down again - at least another hour at the summit would have been appreciated to take it in and hike to all the viewing stations.

Expensive coach ride. Still had a €10 euro fee at destination. Worth the climb and early rise to see. Trip was not 4 hrs though
