Experience Mount Vesuvius

Mount Vesuvius is a monumental sight to behold. It overlooks the Gulf and represents the city of Naples on every postcard. This is your chance to turn a postcard dream into reality and head to the crater of the world's second most dangerous active volcano.

Begin your Naples port tour by meeting a professional guide and enjoying a comfortable one hour ride to the entrance of Vesuvius National Park to begin your ascent. Pine forests, lush woods, bright yellow flowers, and other captivating volcanic landscapes make the drive a spectacular experience.

Enjoy the amazing view of Naples from the peak of the volcano. Once at the crater, a local volcanologist guides you around and introduces you to the geology of Vesuvius and the history of its eruptions. Afterward, return down the volcano, once again enjoying the breathtaking sights.

Book this Naples shore excursion today to experience the spectacular Mount Vesuvius.

Please Note: The entrance fee to the Vesuvius National Park (approximately 16 EUR per person) is not included in the tour price and will be collected by the tour guide prior to arrival.

5 StarsMt. Vesuvius ExcursionDecember 28, 2016

Reviewer: Paula L
I am giving this excursion 5 stars because it was well organized and the guide was pleasant and accommodating. I would like to warn participants that the 4WD is a 4WD bus that does a lot of bouncing during a 20 minute ride to the hiking point. I would not recommend this trip if you have a bad back or neck. Also, it is a 20 minute hike, not walk to the top.

I am glad that we chose this tour- not many people can say they have been on the crater of any volcano. The experience was spectacular and breathtaking. I do feel that the description listed for this tour isn't accurate though. It states that one must be able to step onto the 4x4 vehicle and walk 20 minutes to the crater of the volcano from the vehicle. The word 'climb' is much more accurate than the words step and walk!! Getting to the crater from the vehicle is a strenuous climb on a fairly narrow path. Not dangerous, but strenuous. A good amount of time was allowed at the crater. One complaint that I have is that this tour left the cruise port at 10:30AM, so most of us had a big breakfast and didn't intend to eat lunch. But we were taken to a restaurant prior to climbing the volcano. This was not in the tour description and because of this we returned to the port over an hour after we should have and we had to cancel other plans in Naples so as not to miss our ship's departure.

Reviewer: Nancy Gard
The Pompei excursion proceeded ours with the same guide, so their last stop was private lunch at a restaurant which we hadn't counted on or really come prepared for the extra expense. It was a nice lunch though and then we proceeded to the 4x4 vehicles. Enjoyed the hike to the volcano and views from there. The 5 minute presentation by the vulcanologist was a bit disappointing and basic. I was fortunate to get a chance to talk with Park Ranger at the bottom while waiting for the 4x4 vehicle to come pick us back up. She was very informative about the local vegetation and history and was very willing to share her knowledge.

5 StarsAmazing to be standing on historyJuly 14, 2016

We've all read and learned about Mt. Vesuvius and Pompeii but to be standing on the top looking down into the crater was amazing! The vehicle took us to the upper parking where we had to hike up the rest of the volcano to the top. It was a tough climb for me but VERY worth it!! The path is loose dirt/gravel so definitely wear appropriate shoes.
