Be sure you are positive the road has reopened before booking tour. The tour company I used said road was open until we were already on the way to Pompeii. Very disappointing. Everything else in Napoli has been superb.

Bit of a travel on the winding slopes up to the carpark where it’s an easy walk to the top for great views on the clear day we had. Well worth heading up to the go to say you’ve been up a live volcano ☺️

Take the time to drive up and then walk to the caldera. This massive volcano wiped out the entire surrounding area 2000 years ago. Walk around the caldera and see the still fuming center. A very neat hike.

Is the effort of getting to Vesuvius worth it? My boyfriend says yes, I am on the fence. Let’s start with the positives, the trip from Naples to Pompei is easy, €2.80 on the train, 30 minutes no changes. At Pompei, we planned to get...More

It is closed after heavy raining and when it is expected to rain. Now it has been very good weather for a while and it is still closed because the path is damaged.
