Naples Mt. Vesuvius Excursion Reviews

Explore Naples' legendary Mt. Vesuvius, the only active volcano left in Europe. A bus ride up the side offers a chance to hike a slippery cinder track.
What an experience, long hike up the mountain but was so worth it, a very memorable experience.

Cruise line rates this a level 3, thinking because it only rates with 3 levels. Climbing mount Vesuvius is a 6, but it was doable with frequent rest stops. Fortunately with started with the volcano and then did Pompeii. Would've been much harder if done in reverse. Highly recommend at least Pompeii and definitely the volcano for anyone willing to put in some strenuous activity. Read Less

Mt Vesuvius is worth the 20 minute climb to the top! Pompei is best seen with a guide. It is a full city and the guide takes you to the major sites and gives good explanations.
