It's really a beautiful view from here and the view of the impressive crater is unique. Take a jumper with you, the temperature is much cooler than at sea level. As well as a hat.

We took a bus from Pompeii to Vesuvius- after buying a ticket for the crater there is a bit of a trek up a slightly slippery path to the top - the view of the Bay of Naples is amazing, and well worth it!

What can one say about a trip to Mount Vesuvius? You have to visit it if you are in the area, but really seeing it from afar probably does it more justice. We took the blue bus from outside Pompeii train station, HOWEVER the driver...More

Hi there, I am doing a Mediterranean cruise in July and we dock in Naples from 7am to 8pm. I want to visit Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius. Would i have enough time to do both and what is the best way to travel from the port to both locations? I was thinking of visiting Pompeii first because once we dock from the cruise, the bus depot is located at Molo Immacolella, the pier just to the east of Molo Angioino the cruise port. I am hoping if a get a bus from here it will take me to the Porta Marina entrance to the ruins. I just need to figure out the bus times from the bus depot if anyone would know where I get this? I am thinking if we could be at Pompeii by 8.30 approx. and spend approx. 3 hours that we could then get transport from Pompeii to Vesuvius. I would assume we would have to come back to Pompeii from Vesuvius to get transport back to the port but I am conscious of the time as we would need to be back at the port by 6pm approx. Would anyone know if this is the best way to do both Pompeii and Vesuvius without been under pressure to get back to the cruise port?

Hi- You can get a bus to Vesuvius from Pompeii ruins and back again. It's just over €3 each way and runs every 50 min. It will be very rushed, if you try to do both in the same day, however, as Pompeii Ruins is HUGE. If you... More
