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.

With public bus you will be dropped off in the highest point that buses can go-you, you can purchase your Entry to Vesuvius that cost €10pp. Walk took me 30 minutes one way but I was in rush... to catch last bus. Enjoy!

  • I went there in May 2018. Hiking in a volcano is definitely a memorable experience. The trail are easy to follow, it’s suitable for people of all ages. I saw many juniors and seniors there climbing the volcanic mountain..

  • I am fat and out of shape but still managed to walk the trail to the top of Vesuvius in July 2018 with my family. Our driver took us to the last Parking area where you could drive no further and we walked up from there. The trail was smooth with only a few really steep sections. Take your time and enjoy the view as there should be no race against the clock, which is exactly why we hired a private driver so he would wait no matter how long it took to complete!

  • A must see if you're in the area. The staff handling tickets and so on are generally very polite and friendly. Be aware of opening hours, as we nearly "raced" to the top in order to get a good view before closing time. Note that parking opportunities are limited.

  • It was just incredible. The ruins took you back in time 2000 years. You could see how people lived almost the same as a live now. Beautiful artwork.
