Vesuvius - Full Day
Standing shoulder to shoulder with Mount Etna, Vesuvius is one of Italy's most famous volcanoes. In fact, if volcanoes had their own celebrity circuit, Mount Vesuvius would be a dead cert A-lister. It's the one that famously wiped out the Roman city of Pompeii back in the first century AD. And while it hasn't been active since the 1940's, Mount Vesuvius still rumbles now and again a hint to its capricious nature. Pull on your hiking boots and make the rewarding zigzag trek to the summit you will be accompanied by an expert alpine guide all the way to the crater. The leg work is well worth it. You'll peer into its cone to see the single plume of smoke rising from it, reminding you it's just sleeping. As you can imagine, the views from here are staggering, too. On the return journey you'll make one last stop at a museum showcasing minerals that have been found in and around Vesuvius. A perfect day for nature lovers.
