Mt Vesuvius Half-Day Tour from Sorrento
Mount Vesuvius is one of the most famous volcanoes on earth. It is also the only active volcano on the mainland of Europe and provides the focal point of the entire Bay of Naples. Our transport and local expert will take you up to 1,000 metres and from there you can walk to the very top and admire the splendid panoramic views - weather condition permitting - across the bay. Peer in to the blackened crater where a single plume of smoke rises, reminding us that the volcano is only just sleeping for now!

Visit the only active Volcano on mainland Europe that dominates the Bay of Naples.
Drive up through the old original crater to approx. 3000 ft, and then make the final climb on foot up a zig zag path of volcanic gravel.
Our transport and local expert will take you up to 1.000 metres.
From there you can walk to the very top and admire the splendid panoramic views – weather conditions permitting – across the bay.
Once at the top you can walk a half of the way around the crater to take a look inside and to admire the whole bay. Approx. 20min uphill climb and 30min downhill climb.
On your return to Sorrento a stop will be made at Vico Equense to visit the mineralogical museum where you can see approx. 230 varieties of Vesuvian Minerals as well as thousands of other examples from around the world.
