  • The visit is worth, is really awesome to be there in the crater of Vesuvius, know the power she exudes, all the history involved. However, the beginning of the visit was a bit troubled, we buy the voucher logo on arrival at Pompeii, but the climb up to the National Park of Vesuvio is made on a bus where there is no control of people, such as a queue or something, that is, the bus is clogged with people, you can't even move, it's a lack of respect for people. Other than that, the ascent is amazing, the view is magical and Yes, it's kind of scary.

  • You come, you begin to pay 5 euros parking lot, as they call it, but the car is basically stripes on blue Street, first shuttle scam 2 euros per person to take you to the first stop where you pay the ticket, otherwise tea nor riscendi walk, after cheating, you resume the bus, you will arrive at the tip drops in practice a family of two adults and two children for 2 hours spends about 50 euros, this is usually Pack discouraged at most

  • Well if I can get up to top of Mount Vesuvius, anyone can. For me it was a slow gradual walk but when you get to the top the views are fantastic. Younger and fitter folk can do it without any bother. ...  read more »
  • A long, windy and narrow drive up takes a little bit, but once you hit the starting point of the trails, it is up to you. The views on the way up are astounding. Each turn of the trail up has an easy place to rest. You will need a little cardio and leg endurance - but well worth it when you reach the top. The views into the active volcano are beautiful and the panoramic view of the bay below are amazing.
  • Climb to the top is doable for those of us not in peak fitness, walking sticks are available for a small donation and really help. The 1st part of the climb is the steepest/hardest but there are seats to rest or just stop and enjoy the stunning views over Naples. Take plenty of water but bare in mind the toilet facilities are limited.
  • Amazing opportunity to walk on a live Volcano. The walk to the crater is medium difficulty and in summer is very hot due to no shade. It'll be crazy when it next erupts to know I stood on the top and looked in.
  • I've frequented several challenging climbs on my travels and Vesuvius is one of the prettiest I've ever walked up. That said, this is a very long hike even with the 4wd truck taking you up most of the way. Plan a solid half day for this (at least) and bring plenty of water for the hike up, although there is a cart up top for souvenirs and snacks. On a nice day, the mountain will likely be pretty busy, but there are still plenty of opportunities to get good shots. The volcano isn't going to be bubbling up, it's a pretty dormant (not scientific here, it's just not exciting) volcano -- however this is the mountain that named Volcanos! Once you're done, spend some time cooling off at the bottom with some wine or Limoncello.
  • consider yourself walking up on a very dangerously active volcano that can still erupt at any giving point in time ppl another thing to ppl anything higher then a magnitude 3 earthquake and mt.Vesuvius goes on alert Your risking your own life & limbs just to climb up mt.Vesuvius just to see inside the crater of mt.Vesuvius. always don't forget the 79ad eruption of mt.Vesuvius eruption always on the back the peoples mind from the city of Naples to the city of Pompeii. also don't forget the 1944 mt.Vesuvius minor eruption ppl.
