Be prepared for a bit of a climb to get to the top, your tour bus will only take you so far, but the climb really is worth it. The views from the top are amazing and it is possible to see steam coming out...More
Due to a recent heavy rain which damaged some parts of the trail, it is impossible to walk around the rim of the crater.
I sat across an American tourist on a crowded train and exchanged pleasantries and he told me about it. I then...More
The sign said closed for "maintainables". You can't get to the volcano and no-one sez anything. The people who sell you the ticket, the bus driver, the locals and the stall holders. You can sort of see their point so you'll still go and possibly...More
Having visited Pompeii, you have to visit Vesuvious, being the cause of it's destruction. The scale of this volcano is staggering - especially considering how much smaller it is since it's key eruption in 79AD. It's still a monster, with a huge crater. Don't expect...More

There is no information in the city that the vilcano is clised for pathway reconstruction. You just buy a ticket and spen 1 hour in bus traveling and you found all is for nothing. I am so disappointed. Absolutely lack of information.
