Drive along a scenic route and climb the summit of Mt. Vesuvius in a 4WD vehicle. Then, walk to the lip of the crater and enjoy superb views of the Bay of Naples and islands of Capri and Ischia, while Vesuvius lets off steam!
What to Expect
Enjoy a half-day tour of Vesuvius, driving along a scenic route past black ash and lava rocks. The 6-hour tour takes you from Sorrento on the Amalfi Coast to the rim of the volcano crater, from where you will get stunning panoramic views of the Bay of Naples and beyond.
Approach the heights of Mt. Vesuvius on board your 4WD ecological bus, then stroll the short path to the edge of one of the world’s most impressive volcanic craters. You will be rewarded with spectacular views, spanning the entire Gulf of Naples, Sorrento Peninsula, and the islands of Capri and Ischia, twinkling like jewels in the sea.
After your exhilarating climb, wind your way back down to visit a wine farm, located at the foot of the mountain. Stroll through the vineyards and learn about the winemaking process. Then, sit down to a leisurely lunch of bruschetta with cherry tomatoes, local cheese and salami, spaghetti with fresh tomatoes, and typical Neapolitan pastiera pie, served with grappa liquor.
Your meal will be accompanied by a tasting of 3 wines from the farm’s own cellars. Sip on a white, a red, and a rosé, and savor the unique flavors produced by the mineral rich volcanic soil.
