Mt Vesuvius - Review
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
Fantastic experience. Bucket list item. Views of surrounding area breathtaking as for the volcano itself humbling, makes you realise the human race is insignificant. Reason for only 4 stars is the litter. It's everywhere I can't understand why people go to see such a magnificent display of the force of nature only to leave their sandwich wrapper, empty bottles etc thrown everywhere. It's such an insult to mother Earth. Also don't use the toilets they are disgusting horrible chemical one's. With over three million people a year at 10 euro each they could at least provide decent sanitation. And bins or police to throw the litter lowlife's into the crater!........
A great experience with my wife. Do not hesitate to book a tour of Mount Vesuvius and Pompeii. It is something you must do if in the area as you will remember it forever.
I had a great hike up here when I went. The weather was on our side as well because it was cloudy and it didn't rain. The views were breathtaking and you get to see Pompeii below. It's not too tough of a hike as well especially if you've climbed The Rockies as these would be a cakewalk.
OMG that views... If you are near to Naples, you need to go here. Recommendation: Go with your car or with bus up to the parking place and then go by walk. It is not necessary to to take another shuttle. It's about 10 minutes by walk to the entrance. It is necessary to buy a ticket, so buy one or they will not let you go further. Tickets are for sale about 0,5 km before entrance.
Mount Vesuvius is a great place to visit. If you go there by public bus then you need to walk very long to go on the top and my recommendation is to use express bus service. It's 20 euro return including entry fee. And this bus goes very high. But from there if you want to go at the top then you need to walk 20 minutes or more depends on your walking speed , it's much easy to come down but walking upwards is never been so easy.
