Naples Shore Excursion: Mt Vesuvius Half-Day Trip from Naples

When your cruise ship docks in Naples, your guide will pick you up from the cruise terminal and take you on your shore excursion to Mt Vesuvius. Learn about the history of this infamous volcano as you drive to Pompeii and then to Vesuvius National Park, arriving about an hour later.

Hop out and follow your guide on a moderate 1-hour hike to the summit of Mt Vesuvius, at 3,900 feet (1,200 meters). Imagine the volcano’s infamous eruption in the year 79 AD that completely obliterated the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Today, though it's currently dormant, Mt Vesuvius the only active volcano in continental Europe.

When you reach the top, you’ll be treated to panoramic views of the Bay of Naples that have captivated visitors for centuries. Then walk around the volcano’s rim and peer into the crater to see plumes of steam issuing from the depths below.

After some time at the summit, follow your guide back down the mountain and then relax on the drive back to Naples.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2011

What a wonderful experience - small group, friendly knowledgeable guide, prompt pick-up...certainly a highlight of our trip.

4 star rating: Recommended August 2012

We didn't have enough time to do Mt. Vesuvius the way it should be done. We only had 1 hour after we arrived at Mt. Approx 25 minutes to walk to the top and 25 min to walk back down. No time to walk around to view the Volcano.
