Vesuvius dominates the beautiful gulf of Naples and it is the most known volcano in the world which still attracts the mass media attention.
The itinerary starts from 1000m high and it finish at 1175m. We also go through some hairpinturn from which the view is fascinating. What is extraordinary is observing the previous lava flow really near your position.
Duringour climb, we can notice the old Somma Volcano which is separated from Vesuvius by Gigante Valley. We walk along the crater until we arrive at Capannuccia: here, we start climbing down.
Villa Arianna and Villa San Marco
Ville d’Otium is where Romans went in order to relax and enjoy the benefits of the place.
Even now you can visit their living rooms,dining room, atrium but also admire the sea and the Vesuvius from their own windows or walk on their own geometric mosaic while surrounded by red, yellow and blue frescos with butterflies, fantastic animals or mythological creatures.
Here you feel like living all the spiritual and physical Roman relieves, instead of the volcanic tragedy which actually appears as a sweet dormancy.
