“Brilliant family fun”
We took this tour with our 3 children, twins age 5 and daughter age 7, we all loved it. First the children were super excited about the 4X4 and the huge wheels !! then the very bumpy ride through the National park was hilarious for them, then a comfortable 20 minute walk up to the crater, we were on level with the clouds which to the children was amazing … they were on top of the world. At the crater we had a guide ( included in price ) who spoke to our children about the volcano in an interesting way, and calmly answered all their crazy questions. The Guide showed us the smoke coming from the rocks which we would have missed if we were on our own. Then a 10 minute walk down, as it is a lot faster going down !! and then the 4×4 back to the car park. No stress, lovely 2 hours. Just one warning, closed in shoes, we saw people climbing in flip flops!!
“A really enjoyable trip I’ll never forget.”
We took the train to Pompeii, and exit at Pompeii Train station. When we arrived, we already saw the shuttle bus of Busvia Del Vesuvio, we bought the ticket from their office at the building on right hand.
The shuttle bus took us to the entrance of the park, and change to the car to go up the mountain. After another 30 minutes rides, we need to walk another 30 minutes to the mountain top. The walk is not easy, but I would say it’s well worth it, you can take photo of the city of Pompeii and Napoli from the top. At the top, the guide will also explain to you the volcano history of the Mount Vesuvio, then you will have around 70 minutes, to take pictures and walk around, including the time you walk back to the bus.
