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.
