What travelers say:

Mount Vesuvius is located on the east coast of the Gulf of Naples in southern Italy, at an altitude of 1281 meters. The violent eruption in 79 AD destroyed the ancient cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum nearby. Now the volcano and the ancient city have become famous tourist attractions in Italy. Mount Vesuvius erupted many times after that eruption. The last time was in 1944. A huge volcanic cone was formed. The crater was 600 meters in diameter and about 300 meters deep, in a semi-dormant state. To visit the volcano, it takes half an hour to climb from the bottom of the mountain to the crater. There is a fence around the crater that visitors can watch. The plank road is only built half a distance from the crater. The crater is charred black with white smoke at the bottom. Out.
