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 Vesuvius National Park has not only natural beauties, but it also boasts a vast agricultural and wine production, unique in its variety and originality of flavours. We will stop at a winery where we will spend some time visiting the vineyard and tasting their typical wines. Some of the best known include Falanghina, Lacryma Christi, Aglianico and many other excellent local wines.
