The viewer is presented with an impressive backdrop - the crater of Vesuvius. In some places steam rises, overall the volcano looks very peaceful these days (even if constant, small earthquakes testify to the opposite). The view over the Gulf of Naples and the view of Pompeii, whose fateful mountain Vesuvius was and is, is also wonderful.The ascent is comparatively short and easy if you took the bus or shuttle bus from the parking lot to the ticket inspection. From there, the Sentiero del Grande Cono leads approx. 1 km in length and at 100 meters up to the crater of Vesuvius.You shouldn't forget warm clothes, a really cold wind can blow up there.
