Mount Vesuvius is most definitely worth visiting.Costing only €10 it takes approximately 2-3 hours to complete the experience. The views over The Bay of Naples are astounding and looking down into the huge crater of the volcano is awesome. Highly Recommend

Best to get a train from Sorrento to Vesuvius station connects with a bus to a car park at Vesuvius. Best to go as earl as you can as it gets very busy and crowded on the walk up to The top.
