Things to know about Mount Vesuvius
Located in the eastern side of Naples, the Vesuvius is an explosive volcano in a quiescent state since 1944, and is one of the most fascinating natural areas of Italy.
Its characteristic look that dominates the magnificent bay, which can be admired from the seafront or from the hill of Posillipo, has made it the true symbol of the city. It is famous around the world for its devastating eruption of 79AD, which destroyed the whole area of Pompeii, Herculaneum and Stabia.
Today, the Vesuvius is one of the most picturesque hedged-in parks of the planet, an ideal destination for nature-trails lovers, with over 50 miles of paths to explore in order to reach the huge crater, from where you can enjoy an unparalleled breathtaking view.
