  • Like every Italian beauty, has its pros and cons. First of all bring sneakers, the first 800 m are a steep climb. If you're not in good shape at the entrance you can borrow a stick, in Exchange for a small donation. Before boarding, if you have to go to the bathroom, I recommend the little bar next to bus parking. Once at the top do not always the bar does use his baths. The effort is compensated by the magnificent view of the entire Gulf napoletano (starting from the valle di maddaloni, caserta, Neapolitan Islands, Naples, and Pompeii) striking is the walk around the crater for both colors to admire the fumarole. The entrance to the Park costs 10 euro. You must buy the ticket before getting to the check point.

  • worsens. Beautiful walk. Bellissimo il panorama. Beautiful experience, but the services do not exist. On the climb to the crater there are trash bins. There are no toilets. The shuttle from the parking lot door at the beginning of the crater is from the third world. Rude staff and unrecognizable by a uniform, a flag or anything. The usual approximation. The unprecedented lack of services. Available are a small bathroom in the bar at the exit of the crater. We can have it all, but if we don't know that valuing is like not having it.

  • Unfortunately not made clear how much walking. Managed it up to first view point. Unluckily cloud so low couldn't see anything so came back down. A steep climb on loose soil needs good walking shoes o...  more »

  • 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!
