Painted over the centuries by various artists, Mt. Vesuvio is the natural landmark of the Bay of Naples. Tragically known as the destroyer of the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, the volcano is certainly a “must see” sightseeing place for every tourist. This tour is an unforgettable experience in order to admire the Bay of Naples from the top of the mountain.
The tour starts every day from Naples, after a 2nd stop in Pompeii to pick other passengers up. The driver will lead you up to the slopes of the mountain where you will stop in a local restaurant with a breathtaking view of the Bay of Naples. Taste local food and enjoy the wine of the vineyards located on the mountain.
The tour will continue to reach 1000 m altitude where the guide will help you with the purchase of the tickets to visit the crater. From the tickets office you will walk to the real top of the volcano to see the crater and listen to the explanation of the professional National Park guide. You will admire the summit of Mount Somma (1133 m) and to the right the cone of Vesuvio (1281 m), both separated by a valley, called Valley of the Giant.
After 2 hours free time to reach the summit and take photos, you can reach the parking area, where the driver will pick you up and drive you back to Naples.
