Mount Vesuvius is one of the most famous volcanoes in the world. It gained its fame through its eruption in 79 AD, which destroyed the Roman cities of Pompeii, Herculaneum and Stabiae. What many people don't know is that even today, the mountain of fire is one of the most dangerous in the world. It rests and when you look at it, you can't see any danger. But this is deceptive, because it is still active and long periods asleep are typical for the Volcano at the gates of Naples. On this tour, you experience the volcano up close and learn all about its history.
