The Busvia del Vesuvio A unique journey through the Matrone road. To follow this road is suggestive, the sensation is that of being in contact with uncontaminated nature. Busvia del Vesuvio is a branch of the Cooperative Torquato Tasso of Sorrento, which has been entrusted with the delicate task of managing an impressive tourism development program that, launched by the Campania region, has allowed the reopening of the ancient Matrone road to the public. Bring fifty thousand tourists each year on the Vesuvius to the Matrone road, the track built in 1894 by the engineer of Boscotrecase Gennaro Matrone and reopened today, only to the ecological buses of the Park, is one of the objectives of Busviadel Vesuvio.
"I had never travelled in a vehicle like this before and never climbed a volcano, especially a world famous bad boy like Vesuvius either, so this really was a one of a kind experience in my life! Seriously, I cannot figure out how some people here are complaining about the bus ride being dangerous, considering the fact that they are crazy enough to climb a dormant volcano, that might just decide to erupt in their faces, while they are at it!
There was a long line outside Pompeii station for the bus.We waited for at least 40 minutes for the bus.Everything was a bit disorganised as seems to be the case often in Italy! You take an ordinary bus to the edge of the mountain and then climb on this beast of a vehicle for the rest of the journey. There are strict time deadlines to meet and toilets are scarce, so do keep those in mind, if you are considering this outing.Also, you need to be reasonably fit and wear sturdy shoes if you are intending to climb Vesuvius.We had a wonderful time and I highly recommend it!"
