What You Can Expect

Mt Vesuvius Half-Day Trip from Naples

Mt Vesuvius, Italy

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.

Very well organised tour and the best pizza we had whilst in Naples.

The tour ladies were very kind and knowledgeable. They were also very patient with my mother who had hurt her ankle before the tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2017

The tour was great and above expectations with knowledgeable guides. What really took it over the top was the unfortunate fact that the summit was closed due to safety concerns of excessive winds blowing visitors and Viator offered refunds or retrips the next day. Thank you for a great experience.

Pizza, drive to volcano, walk up hill to see volcano, walk back down again. 1 euro to take a piss and some good well priced souvenirs on the way. Good.

Fantastic experience with incredible views from the top of the Amalfi Coast, Naples and Capri, the crater has smoking fumerols and the Broom plants that covered the volcano smelled amazing.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

The overall experience was more than I expected. However, tourist should be given more time for the climb and enjoyment at the top of Vesuvius.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2016

The view at the top is fantastic. There were a combination of guides at different times and it was a reasonably large group, however I had no issue hearing the guide. Air conditioned transport was perfect as it was an awfully hot day. The pizza meal to start the tour was a real treat.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

The hike is a workout but the views from the top of the crater are beautiful!
