A full guided tour of the breath-taking volcano of Mount Vesuvius

Mount Vesuvius is a stratovolcano that dominates the Bay of Naples, about 9 kilometres east of Naples. Although it is now classified as "Green Level", meaning it is not expected to erupt, it is most famous for its eruption in AD 79, which led to the burying and destruction of the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum.

As well as place of majestic natural beauty itself, the mountain also affords stunning views of the coast and sea, and a day trip and walking tour to Mount Vesuvius is also a wonderful treat for those interested in geology and natural landscapes.
