  • See pine forests, incredible landscapes and the Gulf of Naples from Mount Vesuvius!
  • Join an experienced guide for a fun climb and learn about the history of the world's most famous volcano
  • Smell the minerals and magma and see lava from the last eruption back in 1944

Join a guide and scale the gentle slopes of the world's most famous volcano, which once destroyed the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Smell the earth's magma bubbling beneath you, get amazing views of the Gulf of Naples, and walk a unique lunar landscape with these Vesuvius tickets. It's a once-in-a-lifetime climb!

Angry eruptions and terrible gas? No, not the effects of a disagreeable meal – just a trip to Mount Vesuvius! Leave Pompeii or Naples and enter the National Park of Vesuvius, where you'll climb the slopes of the world's most famous volcano with an experienced guide!

This monolithic somma-stratovolcano is still considered one of the world's most dangerous volcanoes – if she blows again, she'll affect almost 3,000,000 people living nearby. But don't worry, she hasn't so much as burped since 1944.

Your Vesuvius ticket will let you walk the lunar-like landscape and admire an incredible view of the Gulf of Naples. Due to current maintenance work you can't walk around the crater, but you can still get pretty close. See and smell the earth's magma and all those minerals that shape the rocks and produce amazing colors.

Bring a camera for incredible panoramas of Mount Somma along the way, and wear something warm – it's chilly up there!

  • At the summit, show your smartphone voucher at the ticket desk of Rifugio Imbò at Strada Matrone, as indicated on the maps, for a paper ticket. You can then join the tour in your preferred language
