We took the local bus service from Pompei which was much cheaper than the tour buses which ended up in the same car park at Mt Vesuvius. From there you pay a fee to go up the path. Walking sticks were available for a donation when we were there. Felt the local bus a good option as we could spend as long as we wanted on the climb up and time at the top. It is a pretty steep climb but manageable and well worth the effort. Path is gravel and easy to slide on so the walking sticks are useful. Once at the top the path goes around the crater and its a wonderful sight and the views over Naples are spectacular. Very enjoyable visit.
