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

Begin your half-day excursion with pickup from your port in Naples, where you’ll meet your guide and travel toward Vesuvius National Park. As you go, hear the history of the only active volcano in continental Europe, responsible for the destruction of Pompeii and Herculaneum in 79 AD.

Upon arriving, begin the hike to the summit with your guide, reaching an impressive 3,900 feet (1,200 meters). After roughly an hour’s journey, you’ll be rewarded with incredible views stretching over the Bay of Naples. As you travel around the crater's rim, don’t be surprised if you see trails of steam rising from the depths of the sleeping beast.

After soaking up the view, travel back to your coach, concluding with transportation back to port.
