Today tourists can admire the remains of the temples, baths, theatres, streets, basilicas, fountains and villas, still richly decorated with fresco paintings and mosaics.

Our driver will take you to the height of 1.000 meters from where you will be able to walk on to the crater. Mount Vesuvius (Italian: Monte Vesuvio, Latin: Mons Vesuvius) is a stratovolcano in the Gulf of Naples. Vesuvius consists of a large cone partially encircled by the steep rim of a summit caldera caused by the collapse of an earlier and originally much higher structure. Vesuvius has erupted many times since and is the only volcano on the European mainland to have erupted within the last hundred years. Today, it is regarded as one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world because of the population of 3,000,000 people living nearby and its tendency towards explosive (Plinian) eruptions. It is the most densely populated volcanic region in the world. At the end of the excursion you will be taken back to your hotel or to your cruise ship dock in the comfort of our vehicle and with the professional yet personal touch of our driver.
