Decided to hike Mt. Vesuvius and visit Herculaneum on the same day because my sisters and I are made of sterner stuff and we were showing our kids (and husbands) that 50+ really is the new 30. Tried to pick a day as equally hot...More

Walked Vesuvius several times over the years. Use to be able to park in upper car park. Now you park lower down and take a bus, which you pay for. Or you walk which is quite a way. I did neither as it was 16:45hrs....More

As someone who teaches Cambridge Latin, I felt like I really had to go. You know, before it erupts again. We used the bus that leaves from right outside Ercolano station — 10 E for the bus, 10 E for entrance to the park. Well...More

Amazing views of the Bay of Naples. Not much to see inside the cone of the volcano, but you'd be in trouble if you do see action in there. Quite a hike up, but there are shops along the way offering water and iced drinks...More

Vesuvio is must see. Beautiful and historic volcano. Erupted as recently as 1944. Visit Pompeii while you're at it. Lots of walking. Wear comfortable shoes and clothes. Take camera or phone for photos.

The walk to the summit from the drop point is fairly tough on a 90 degree Naples day, but the payoff is worth it. You can look into the crater, see sulphuric deposits near vents, locate the ruins of Pompeii, and have a great view...More

We were on a tour from Naples that took us to Pompeii for a 2hr tour, a Pizzeria for lunch and then we drove to about 1000m and walked from the car park up to the crater. The climb takes around 30mins up and down...More

The first and interesting thing is that the Railway station to use is Herculaneum (Ercolano). We caught a bus to the Volcano car park directly from the railway station it was easy to get and well posted. The drive up the mountain takes about 20...More

I know how you feel, we were due to travel to Napels after having spent a few days in northern Italy first. Even when actually in the country with easy access to TV and newspapers, we found zero information, even though we... More
