The Basics

Mt. Vesuvius is easily seen from below, but a trip to the volcano itself provides the best understanding of the area and its impact on the region’s history. A hike up the mountain begins in Mount Vesuvius National Park, which has nine nature trails and allows for summit access. The crater’s lunar landscape is otherworldly, and the views are tough to beat. Many visitors combine a visit to the area with a stop in the scenic seaside town of Sorrento.

Mt. Vesuvius and Pompeii Day Trip from Naples all inclusive
The top of a volcano and the streets of 2000 years ago on the same day? It’s a must-see. Walking through history from the safety of today is a rare privilege.

Day Trip to Pompeii Ruins & Mt. Vesuvius from Naples
Our tour guide is very professional. We got more than expected knowledge about Bompeii. He introduced the ruin in a brief and clear way. He remembers the details of the time the volcano erupted and the reason why so many people died.

Day Trip to Pompeii Ruins & Mt. Vesuvius from Naples
Our guides Rosa, Rafi and driver Frank did an awesome job! Just make sure you wear some good shoes/hiking boots, you'll need it! :-). But once you make it to the top, what a sight!! I'd say it's a must if you are visiting the Naples/Amalfi coast region!

Naples Shore Excursion Mt Vesuvius and Pompeii Day Trip
Really great day that we enjoyed so much. Brilliant Pompeii finished off with a lovely pizza before being zipped off to conquer Vesuvius.....well the last 200m anyway. The hosts were great and made sure that we got back to our ship in time despite very busy traffic in Naples

When to Get There

Though Mt. Vesuvius is visitable open year-round, the best time to go is in the off-season, October to April. Crowds and temperatures both rise during summer. Spring and early fall provide the best times to avoid the area’s potential fog.

The Eruption That Changed History

It’s impossible to understand the impact that Mt. Vesuvius had on Italy—and the world—without a visit to the nearby archaeological sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Though many people tragically died in the volcanic eruption, their homes and ways of life remain largely intact in one of the world’s best-preserved ancient sites.
