Begin your half-day trip with pickup from your Naples hotel. Meet your local guide and travel by coach to Vesuvius National Park.
From there, hop out on foot and begin the hike to the volcano’s summit. As you go, your guide will discuss its notorious eruption in 79 AD and other fascinating facts behind the only active volcano in continental Europe. A medium-to-high fitness level is required for the climb.
At the summit, take a thrilling walk around the crater at 3,900 feet (1,200 meters). Peer down into the depths to see steam rising from the sleeping beast. Then soak up gorgeous, panoramic views of the Bay of Naples.
Afterward, reward your hard work with a stop at an authentic Italian pizzeria to enjoy a complimentary pie and a soft drink.
Appetites sated, you will conclude your afternoon with transportation back to your Naples hotel.
