We had a private driver named Giovanni! He was very nice, drove great, and also talked a bit about the volcano. My mother and I were then dropped at the starting point and had about 1.5 hours to walk up and down once. We didn't have a guide, so we had time to ourselves and were able to climb up relaxed. Was a great view from the top! At the end there was a snack stand and in between there were also small accessory stands where you could buy nice souvenirs.

Transfer on time from Naples to Pompeii, where we ate lunch included in the visit. From there we left for Vesuvius. The guide gave us all the explanations on the way. The transfer reaches an altitude of 1000 meters, the remaining 200 are to be done on foot (challenging climb but not impossible even for poorly trained people). NB: the lunch with pizza before the climb could also have been avoided!

I made the mistake of going there with a sprain and on a crutch and I confirm the climb is complicated for those who are not in good shape. But not impossible! And what pride and what a sight once you get to the top. The crater is intimidating but very calm, I didn't see any sulfur escape but whatever. The effort is worth it! Only downside, the little time allocated for the ascent, the crater and the descent. To have!
