About Mt Vesuvius, Naples
Vesuvius is said to be the only active volcano in the main part of Europe and has been the cause of some of the biggest volcanic eruptions. Found on Italy's west coast, it seems to be watching over the city of Naples. The Famous eruption that destroyed (as well as preserved) Pompeii and Herculaneum is what the mountain is often known for. Being here is a very eerie way to be a part of history.
The last eruption occurred in 1944 and it is largely considered to be dormant but the mountain is still a source of concern since it is so close to the city of Naples. Nevertheless it is a wonderful sight to see and a rare part of nature that is a privilege to witness. Coming to Naples and not seeing the famous Vesuvius would be a real shame, so do put this on your list.

Mt Vesuvius, Naples Reviews
This is a beautiful volcano! I was there couple years ago. The walk up is quite easy. At the top you can see down in the center and people also sell little souvenirs and rocks. You can see Naples from the top too. Beautiful city !
Fantastic experience walking up the volcano. Being able to look down into the caldera. Wonderful views at the top across the bay of Naples. Just make sure you put on some stout shoes. Some silly people walking up had just flip flops on. Their feet were cut to ribbons on the volcanic pumice. Just stupid!
Easy trail to top. Amazing views. Sobering to think of the risk millions of people are taking living so close to this explosive volcano. The walking sticks they hand out aren't really needed.
Was really looking forward to seeing Pompeii from the top of Vesuvius, but the entrance was closed with little notice. The blue bus that takes visitors up the mountain took us all up to the final parking lot but then had to turn around. I went in the afternoon, so maybe going in the morning is better to avoid unforeseen closures.
This visit is incredible and I recommend to everyone. We take a bus to vesuvio and we walk 20-30 minutes to the top. There's a nice view to the vulcan and to the city.
