Travel notes about tour
Vesuvius is almost 1280 meters high, and it is the only active volcano in Europe. It’s one of the most dangerous, because the territory at its feet is densely populated. In fact, the houses reach 700 meters high. During the eruption of 79 AD, entire cities, including Pompeii, Herculaneum and Stabia, were destroyed. The last eruption occurred in 1944, during the Second World War. After the last eruption, Vesuvius began a phase of quiescence in which the eruptive vent is blocked by the lava of the last eruption. This phase, currently underway, is characterized by low seismicity and fumarolic activity. At present, the alert level of Vesuvius is GREEN, as established by the Department of Civil Protection, based on the results of monitoring, therefore do not report any abnormal phenomenon compared to the ordinary activity of the volcano. We remind the lands around volcano are very fertile in fact; many farm and winery located on Vesuvius produce excellent products exploiting the richness and fertility of the soil.
The walk around the diameter of the cone is not very difficult, but it is not for children under 5 years. We also recommend wearing comfortable shoes. The best time to visit Mount Vesuvius is from April to October.
