  • Amazing experience. We drove as far up the wine could and parked the car. From there we went the rest of the way up, not far to go. Easy going. Well organized and labeled. Wonderful view over Naples on the way up. Extraordinary crater, Naples, Pompeii, Capri and Sorrento coasts from the top. Plenty of room at the top. Peaceful and quiet at the top. A little magical. Great organized and nice that we could walk around nearly half of the crater. A great experience and a great memory for life. Recommended indeed.

  • The Vesuvius National Park includes, in addition to the path to the crater, trails of varying difficulty. Mount Vesuvius is the vesuvian Observatory Museum. The visit to the crater is expensive and has little care, the other paths are free (at least they were before as well as the Observatory Museum). At the top it's cooler and should not going if it is cloudy there (maybe there is still a contact to inquire). The last part has to be done on foot crater. Nice views, suggestions, interesting to see monte Somma, former volcano but shame about the kind of bathrooms (I don't know if there are in addition to the paths for the crater), for transport (there are public and private bus lines that give or gave no time or you go by car). Shame about various problems.

  • 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.

  • 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!
