In the Nature of Mont Vesuvius
Once you enter the heart of Mount Vesuvius, you can decide what kind of trail to take, but it will be an unforgettable nature trail in any case. As you climb, the fatigue will increase, but so will the satisfaction and wonder at the breathtaking views of the Gulf of Naples. You can choose to climb up to the crater, where you will discover a lunar landscape and take wonderful photos. Vesuvius' biggest and most famous eruption was in 79 AD, which completely destroyed the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, the remains of which are now among the largest archaeological sites in the world. Vesuvius' last eruption was in 1944, after which it entered a dormant phase that lasts until today.
Return to Amalfi or Positano
At the end of the walk, you can stop at the Park's shop, where you will find various types of souvenirs to take home as a memento of this incredible experience. You will also find various food and wine specialties, as the soil of Vesuvius is particularly fertile for vineyards and therefore for the production of excellent local wines. At the end of the visit, your driver will be waiting for you to take you back to the Amalfi Coast at your accommodation or at the point you indicate. This will be the end of a fantastic experience in one of Europe's most famous natural attractions.
