What's not included

Entrance fee to the Vesuvius National Park
  • Travel directly from Ercolano to the volcanic cone of Vesuvius
  • Enjoy stunning views of the Gulf of Naples and the towns below from atop Vesuvius National Park
  • Stare into the crater where 1.5 million tons of molten rock and ash gushed forth every second in 79 AD

With the best views of the Gulf of Naples and lush greenery at its base, Vesuvius is the picture of tranquility – but nearly 2,000 years ago it reigned devastation on the Italian coast. The fossilized remains of humans struck down by ash are the most powerful reminder of mother nature's unbridled power.

Journey directly to the top of Vesuvius aboard a comfortable shuttle bus that will pick you up and drop you off at Herculaneum.

  • Show your smartphone ticket to the staff at the Vesuvio Express office, located at the large square in front of Ercolano Scavi Station
  • Please arrive 15 minutes before your preferred departure time. Buses run every 40 minutes
  • After your visit, you can hop on the bus back to Herculaneum where you hopped off, at Piazzale Gran Cono
