About Mount Vesuvius

Former residents of Pompeii and Herculaneum were blissfully unaware that they lived in the shadow of an active volcano, Mount Vesuvius. When it erupted in 79 AD, they were not prepared to see their civilization come to an end. Even today, scores of visitors throng to Mount Vesuvius to behold its majesty and maleficence.

Why visit Mount Vesuvius?

Did you know?
  • Mount Vesuvius isn't a single peak, but rather sits within a much larger caldera, the remnant of an ancient volcano called Monte Somma. Vesuvius itself formed within Somma's caldera after a massive collapse around 17,000 years ago.
  • During eruptions, the friction between ash particles and volcanic gases can create an electrical phenomenon called volcanic lightning. This isn't your typical lightning, but rather bursts of electrical energy that illuminate the ash plume with an eerie glow.
  • While Pompeii is the most famous city buried by Vesuvius, it wasn't alone. Herculaneum, another Roman city, suffered a different fate. A pyroclastic flow, a superheated avalanche of ash and gas, engulfed Herculaneum, perfectly preserving its wooden structures and even some organic materials.
  • The eruption of 79 AD wasn't a complete surprise. Accounts from the time, including those by Pliny the Younger, describe earthquakes and other unusual activity in the days leading up to the eruption.

Esperientzia oso ona izan da, laburra baina atsegina. Merezi du Vesubioraino igo eta kraterra eta goialdetik dauden ikuspegiak ikustea.

Overall all good. Maybe it would be better to receive tickets in app (for Pompei). We got there by train and had to walk to other entrance. For Ercolano it was better because we received tickets by email. Vesuvio trip was good. Meeting point was on point, driver drove us safely to the top. Guide which is included is not part of trip but has to be found at the top. Maybe 30-60 minutes more at the top would be nice.

I found the meeting point easily and we left on time for Vesuvius. We were a big international group but once we arrived at the volcano it was every man and woman for himself. A volcanologist presentation was included in the ticket but it was up to us to find him/her on the top after the climb. I didn't hear everything the volcanologist had to say because time was pressing and I wanted to do the full walk around the volcano. Our group had 1.40 hours to climb and explore. One negative point is no one warns that there are no public toilets at the volcano. To use a toilet you have to buy a souvenir (and the choice wasn't great) in a shop because toilets were reserved for customers. But as a whole I found it quite practical to book a tour instead of trying to go there on my own. I recommend.

The volcano trip was good. Direct to the location and had fun. ......But the other trip the guide tour at the ruins was bad due to the guide. He was awful. With kids in the group instead of providing more facts that all ages could enjoy, the guide was consistently referring to sexual behaviors. Very disappointing

It was easy to find the meeting location, but the bathrooms did not have toilet paper or soap...disgusting. Hiking was fantastic. I would recommend a jacket and Dramamine if you get nauseous easily.

The staff in the shop in Via Roma were so friendly and so helpful. The bus out to Vesuvius was good. The instructions were clear and the journey back was on time. All in all, it was a great trip and we really enjoyed it.

All perfect. Transfer shuttle arrived well in advance to the meeting point (in front of Hotel Ramada, Naples). Driver (Aniello) courteous and kind who anticipated us some info related to Vesuvius. Challenging but beautiful walking route with breathtaking views. Comprehensive guide with detailed decription even if a bit short. Fascinating arrival at the cone. Magnificent experience.
