Scale Mount Vesuvius on board a 4x4 vehicle

Climb Mount Vesuvius the efficient and exhilarating way, with a 4x4 vehicle. Once we've almost reach the top, walk along a short path and stand at the edge of this famous volcano's gaping crater. Peer down into the monstrous mountain itself, acknowledging the terrific natural forces that once sprung from this crater and covered the lives of hundreds of people below.
Alternatively, gaze out into the distance and be rewarded with mind-blowing views. From here, you can see the entire Gulf of Naples and scan the picturesque Sorrento Peninsula. Staring out over the Tyrrhenian Sea, you'll also be able to spot the famous islands of Capri and Ischia, twinkling like small gems in the vast blue expanse.

Taste the original flavors produced by the mineral-rich volcanic soil. 
Relax as you are served a leisurely lunch. First, enjoy the appetizer - bruschetta made with fresh cherry tomatoes, local cheese and salami. Next, savor the main course of spaghetti with fresh tomatoes. Finally, end this rich culinary experience with delectable Neapolitan pastiera pie accompanied by grappa liquor.
