  • After your visit, you can hop on the Vesuvio Express bus back to Herculaneum where you hop off, at Piazzale Gran Cono
  • Travel directly from Ercolano to the volcanic cone of Vesuvius aboard the trusty Vesuvio Express
  • 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 the comfortable Vesuvio Express shuttle bus, with pick-up and drop-off at Herculaneum. It's by far the easiest and fastest route to the crater.

Air con on the bus, with good instructions where the collection point was for our return. When the return bus was overbooked we were diverted to a taxi with no extra charge. Excellent service.
