Climb Mount Vesuvius
Classified as a Stratovolcano, Mount Vesuvius dominates the skyline and is a legendary volcano that famously erupted in 79 AD and caused the destruction and burial of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Vesuvius stands as the only volcano in mainland Europe that has erupted in the last 100 years – It is considered extremely dangerous due to the amount of human settlement. Today you can take a bus tour from Naples to visit this magnificent natural phenomenon and climb up its slopes to peer into the crater. A hike will take between 20 minutes and is considered not challenging – The views from the top on a clear day are simply fantastic and the caldera and crater are hugely interesting too.
