  • Location: Naples, Italy
  • Duration: 3 hours (approx.)
  • Tour code: 2958V
Visit the volcano that destroyed Pompeii on this fascinating afternoon trip to Mt. Vesuvius from Naples. Traveling to the top of the only active volcano in continental Europe, you'll have panoramic views of the legendary Bay of Naples from east to west.
You'll drive through the town of Torre del Greco to Vesuvius National Park, then hike to the summit of Vesuvius to take a walk around the eerie crater at 3,900 feet (1,200 meters). Remember to wear comfortable walking shoes! A medium to high level of fitness is required to complete the climb.

From the summit, the panoramic views of the Bay of Naples have captivated visitors for centuries. Then, peer down into the depths of the crater to see plumes of steam issuing from the sleeping, but still active, volcano.

Have lunch in a typical Italian pizzeria to enjoy a pizza and a soft drink (included).

After that return to your coach and travel back to Naples. Your tour finishes at the start point in the afternoon.

This is not for the fainthearted; the trek to the summit can be gruelling should one not be wearing the right footwear and have drinking water. The tour on the other hand was good with a very knowledgeable tour guide. The views from the summit are amazibg and there is that sense of achievement having made it to the top.

It will be a challenging walk to the top after you get off of the bus, which takes you most of the way up. We went in June so it was very hot, which made it harder. It was well worth it though. The bus needed to be cooler. Be sure to bring water for the trek up. There are shops at the top where you can purchase drinks, snacks, and souvenirs.
