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.

Fantastic experience with incredible views from the top of the Amalfi Coast, Naples and Capri, the crater has smoking fumerols and the Broom plants that covered the volcano smelled amazing.

The overall experience was more than I expected. However, tourist should be given more time for the climb and enjoyment at the top of Vesuvius.
