For everyone fascinated by volcanoes.

For everyone fascinated by volcanoes

Be it for its natural beauties or astonishing historical-archaeological heritage, the Vesuvius National Park offers lovers of the outdoor life a truly broad selection of experiences. Eleven routes make up the official network of trails climbing up to the Grand Cone of the imposing volcano between geological formations and breath-taking landscapes. They accompany visitors in the discovery of surprising archaeological finds and sites, such as rural Roman villas, ancient farms and villa-farms - once the heart of agricultural production on the outskirts of Pompeii. We are only a few kilometres from the splendid UNESCO World Heritage Site of Pompeii, Herculaneum and Torre Annunziata. Whether you lose your way among the evocative scenery of the Valle dell'Inferno, feel your heart beat while walking along the Lava River or surprise yourself with a visit to the Pietrarsa Railway Museum in Portici, this National Park on the outskirts of Naples will repay you with a unique and all-embracing sensory journey.
