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.
Cruise line rates this a level 3, thinking because it only rates with 3 levels.

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

We booked aPompeii and Mt Vesuvius tour booked through Viator. It was easy to find, and the tour of Pompeii was amazing, as was the view up the Mountain. It wasn't an easy walk, though, so be warned!

Mt Vesuvius is worth the 20 minute climb to the top!
Sail Date: September 2017
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.

Very expensive but we had an excellent guide. The stop at the jewelry store was interesting but the slopes of Mt Vesuvius are really really steep. The teens made it all the way up. I enjoyed the scenery. Pompeii guide was great.

This was a great tour. We climbed Mt. Vesuvius which took us about an hour. Great views of the area and inside the volcano. Coming down took about 20 minutes. Some didn't go all the way up, and some didn't have good time management which held us up a bit to leave for Pompeii. Our tour guide was excellent. Would recommend. Read Less
