Full description

Enjoy a full-day bus trip to Mount Vesuvius from the city of Naples with a guide. Learn about the geological history of the volcano, feast your eyes on stunning views of the Bay of Naples, and watch for local wildlife including deer, eagles, and foxes.

Your tour begins with a bus pick-up from your hotel. Watch as the bustling city streets melt away as you near the Bay of Naples. Here, look for majestic vistas of Mount Vesuvius, the Mediterranean Sea, and the city center of Naples as the bus ascends 1,000 meters up the steep mountainside.

Upon arrival, exit the bus and hike to the lip of the crater. Listen as your volcanological and alpine guide explain the unique geology of the volcano as well as the overall formation of the nearby mountains. Take a photo with family or friends and then board the bus to return to Naples.

The activity was awesome! The driver was in touch when he picked us up. The only issue was we had a wait a little bit for pick up. The car was full, which made it uncomfortable to drive in. You are paying for them to buy your ticket and the ride to the volcano.

Very good experience except for the times given. In the booking we were given a pick up of 9.30am from outside a cafe. Later, an email gave the pick up time of 9.45am, in the event, the driver turned up at 10.10am. We were, therefore, waiting outside the cafe for 45 minutes not knowing whether the driver would turn up at all.

Good. Pretty straight forward. Driver was about 15 minutes late but traffic that day in Naples was horrific because of the big soccer match. Driver was pleasant. Dropped us off and picked us up on time. His driving skills were impressive. Being a driver or a passenger in Naples is not for the faint of heart
