  • Great ride, to get to the top of the volcano Vesuvio, it takes a 20-minute drive, after a few more 30 minutes by bus, then a 30-minute walk, reaching the top the view from room was amazing and the surrounding towns is impressive and beautiful, the crater of the volcano is immense must have more than one Km long, beautiful and curious tour , recommend.

  • All very organized, from the parking lot forced to € 5 up to transport by taxi to 1 € per person. Then the park ticket desk scandalous without even one piece of information, a map, a map available. Technical and scientific publications or a guide of the trails would be greatly appreciated. So the parks do come up losers. Where is the added value? Only cafes and street vendors. Sad. Fortune guided tour of 15 minutes made by competent and passionate. Then the panorama and the place that is breathtaking. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. But with the money you collect may go into some payment for ecosystem service aimed at increasing awareness of the Park, useful and create an awareness of conservation to children .... so there would be plenty to invest in. Last but not least a multimedia system on eruptions

  • Yes arrives and municipal police officers (?) Asking 5 euros to park on the side of a road where exit is nothing short of exhausting with machines that come and go on a single carriageway. Then with 2 euros per person (round trip) you can take a shuttle up to the ticket office. Li 10 euro ticket to make a first piece of paved road at the risk of being put under by tourist coach parking. Here are the only chemical disposal surcharge (0.50 cents). Then begins the dirt path, not long but not quite smooth. Arrived at first souvenirs there are guides (included in the ticket price). The Guide does a dozen steps and then describes the history of the crater with some illustrations from a guide book. A few minutes and then continue alone along the crater rim. When you come over to ask to know where are the ruins of Pompeii. The scenery is gorgeous but would help signs indicating where is Ischia, Capri, Pompeii, Herculaneum, etc. .. signs with directions of the line of the horizon as we are usually in the sights. Let's say that it is worth taking a stroll to see the volcano and the scenery but what you pay might serve you better.

  • The views of the city are pretty good but not the best climb view / experience combo. I would include some time at the top for a drink where you can get a small wine bottle for 5 euro. Oddly you have to pay 10 euro to get in then port-a-potties are still 50 cent? That makes me want to go 3 stars
  • Wow. Pretty amazing stuff. Well worth the visit and climb to the top. The views are amazing as well. You can see all of Naples and all the way to Sorrento. A must visit for those in Naples and the surrounding area.
  • Another poorly run National Site. If in the area, great to tick it off the list of things you have done. But come on Italy you can do better. Only reason I really enjoyed it, was for two reasons, first I was riding and it was a challenging 10km climb, second the views from the top are spectacular, but not sure it's worth paying for the last part of the climb.
  • Really great! Worth it if your physically fit enough. Coach/bus/taxi will drop you off as close as they are allowed and then you walk/hike/crawl crying to the top. The day we went it was covered in cloud so not much of a view but still worth it once you get to the top. Be warned it is a VERY steep climb and not best suited for some as it's like walking on sand with rocks to trip up on and going down is probably just as hard as going up!
  • VERY pricey (5 for parking + 10 euro for each person), but a once in a lifetime experience. Spectacular views from the top of Vesuvio! It's a bit of a treck up the mountain so wear proper shoes!
