Your experience


  • See pine forests, incredible landscapes and the Gulf of Naples!
  • Let an experienced guide introduce you to the history of the most famous volcano in the world on an entertaining hike
  • Smell the minerals and magma and see the lava from the last eruption in 1944


Accompany a guide and climb the gentle slopes of the world's most famous volcano, which once destroyed the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Smell the magma bubbling in the earth beneath you. Enjoy a breathtaking view of the Gulf of Naples and walk through a unique lunar landscape. This ascent is unique!

Leave Pompeii or Naples and enter the Vesuvius National Park, where you will climb the slopes of the most famous volcano in the world with an experienced guide!

This monolithic Somma Stratovolcano is still considered one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world - a new eruption would affect almost 3,000,000 people living nearby. But don't worry, the last eruption of Vesuvius was in 1944.

Wander through the lunar landscape and watch the slope slide down to the Gulf of Naples. Due to the current maintenance work one cannot walk around the crater, but one can still get very close. See and smell the magma of the earth and all the minerals that form the rock and create amazing colours.

Bring your camera so you can take incredible pictures of the Somma volcano and wear something warm if possible - it's getting cool up there!
