Walking Tour on the Fascinating Volcano Vesuvius
The Walking-Tour to Vesuvius begins at the height of 1000 m (3280 ft.) and leads with 8 turns on an excellent prepared sandy walkway to the crater of Mt. Vesuvius 1280m (4202 ft.). The exceptional view over the gulf of Naples will astonish you. Combine emotion with history! Your private Tour-guide will explain you during the excursion the evolution of the Volcano, the various eruptions, the composition of the minerals, the fumaroles and the stratum of the mountain. From the top of Mt. Vesuvius you will admire Capri, Naples and Ischia, the cost line of Sorrento as well as Pompeii and Herculaneum. I would recommend to combine this tour with the visit of Pompeii, Herculaneum, and the Museum of Vesuvius
