4- Vesuvius Volcano- National Park of the Vesuvius
Mount Vesuvius is very well known in the Europe for its volcano. It dominates the Naples’ Bay and it is the only volcano on the European mainland to have erupted within the last hundred years, although it is not currently erupting.
The eruption in AD 79 buried and destroyed the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. They were never rebuilt, although surviving townspeople and probably looters did undertake extensive salvage work after the destructions. The towns’ locations were eventually forgotten until their accidental rediscovery in the 18th century.
On 5 June 1995 The area around Vesuvius was officially declared a national park, and today the Vesuvius is open to visitors for tours and excursion. Lots of guided tours are arranged but we would like to give you the chance to visit it in a very special way. A small network of paths around the mountain can be discovered by bike or on foot, even because there is access by road only within 200 metres (660 ft) of the summit (measured vertically), but thereafter access is on foot only. There is a spiral walkway around the mountain from the road to the crater. All this and more make the Vesuvius the most visited volcano of the world.
Tour takes around 3/4 hrs (you can choose between tours above). Escorted by personal tour guide.
Transfers from/to hotel available.
