  • Explore this world-famous volcano with a local guide 
  • Includes a coach journey to 3,000 feet and short walk around the crater 
  • Stop at a mineralogical museum to see Vesuvian minerals

The brooding Mount Vesuvius is a key part of Italian history. As the only active volcano on mainland Europe, it’s one of the country’s most breathtaking sights, and you can look the destroyer in the eye with this half-day tour.

You’ll board an air-conditioned coach for the ascent to around 3,000 feet, where you’ll continue on foot to the crater (around 30 minutes), with a knowledgeable guide in tow. On a clear day, the panoramic views across the Bay of Naples are unparalleled. Stop for a photo op and walk halfway around the crater to peer into its depths.

On the way back to Sorrento, you’ll stop off at the picturesque town of Vico Equense to visit the mineralogical museum, where you’ll see hundreds of varieties of Vesuvian minerals from the volcano.
