Take in unrivalled coastal and sea views as a part of a Mount Vesuvius walking tour, with transport from the Amalfi Coast

Mount Vesuvius is a magnificant stratovolcano that defines the coastline of the Bay of Naples, sitting about 9 km east of Naples. Although the volcano is now classified as "Green Level", meaning that it is not expected to erupt, the volcano is still best known for its historic eruption in AD 79 that led to the burying and destruction of the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. These lost cities have since been discovered and now provide us with a fascinating glimpse back in time.

On this Mount Vesuvius day tour, which is a part-coach and part-walking tour, you can discover the fascinating scenery and geological features of this famous volcano, and enjoy breath-taking scenery of the sea and South Italy coastline. It includes transport from the Amalfi Coast and can be added to any of our Amalfi Coast vacations - simply ask your personal travel adviser about this walking tour when you book your vacation with us.
