Transfer on time from Naples to Pompeii, where we ate lunch included in the visit. From there we left for Vesuvius. The guide gave us all the explanations on the way. The transfer reaches an altitude of 1000 meters, the remaining 200 are to be done on foot (challenging climb but not impossible even for poorly trained people). NB: the lunch with pizza before the climb could also have been avoided!

I made the mistake of going there with a sprain and on a crutch and I confirm the climb is complicated for those who are not in good shape. But not impossible! And what pride and what a sight once you get to the top. The crater is intimidating but very calm, I didn't see any sulfur escape but whatever. The effort is worth it! Only downside, the little time allocated for the ascent, the crater and the descent. To have!

A great organization. Pickup is done at the agreed time and place. The simple but adequate convivial meal. The guide is clear and attentive. Give additional advice.
