Visiting the Vesuvius means travelling among history, geology and nature, actually this land is an ensemble of natural beauties, breath-taking landscapes, ancient vegetation and traditions which make this area one of the most charming and visited places in the world. This area has become the Vesuvius National Park, born to preserve the local flora, fauna and biodiversity. Once reached the top of the crater, which is more than 200 m deep, you can enjoy a spectacular view of the entire Gulf of Naples. Today, the activity of Vesuvius is constantly monitored by the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology, as a current eruption would be devastating given the presence, on its slopes and nearby, of millions of homes.
The capital of the Campania region, Naples is one of the largest and most fascinating cities in the Mediterranean, much loved and known in the world for its traditions, history, artistic and cultural heritage, landscapes, cuisine and much more. We’ll walk through the streets and neighbourhoods of the historic centre, full of colour and folklore, such as the famous San Gregorio Armeno with its crib shops. The Spaccanapoli area, the Gesù Nuovo Church, the Sansevero Chapel with the Veiled Christ, Sant'Elmo Castle, Dell'Ovo Castle, the Maschio Angioino, Piazza Plebiscito and the Galleria Umberto are all worth a visit. Naples is the home of pizza, so don't miss a stop to taste the real Pizza Margherita.
