What You Can Expect

Mt Vesuvius Half-Day Trip from Naples

Mt Vesuvius, Italy

You'll drive through the town of Torre del Greco to Vesuvius National Park, then hike to the summit of Vesuvius to take a walk around the eerie crater at 3,900 feet (1,200 meters). Remember to wear comfortable walking shoes! A medium to high level of fitness is required to complete the climb.

From the summit, the panoramic views of the Bay of Naples have captivated visitors for centuries. Then, peer down into the depths of the crater to see plumes of steam issuing from the sleeping, but still active, volcano.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

If you plan on seeing Pompeii and Herculaneum you should see Vesuvius as well. Amazing views of the region and a chance to see an active (if currently very placid) volcano. Our guide was excellent and very entertaining and the driver was very good as well (believe me you want that). Worth the climb.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2013

It was a great experience to climb to the top of the volcano! Since we had already toured Pompei, it was interesting and insightful to go to the top of the volcano. The climb to the top is a little difficult if you are out of shape but manageable since you can stop to rest as often as you need. The view from the top is amazing! The tour company arrived on time and picked me up at the hotel. It took longer than advertised since they had to pick up other people as well though. They give you just enough time to climb to the top and come back down and do a little shopping and then will drive you back to your hotel. Wear comfortable shoes!!
