What You Can Expect
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.
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!!
Climbing Mt. Vesuvius is something I've wanted to do for a long time. I noticed the 'fitness level recommendation' on the website after I'd booked the tour and since my fitness level is at UNFIT I got nervous but went ahead anyway to see how I'd go. I took my time, 30 mins and getting to the top was worth it. Make sure you wear runners or hiking boots as the pebbles on the track can get slippery.
