Our fourth day in Positano, we decided to check out Pompeii and Vesuvius. This was the first time for the majority of us and I was extremely anxious to see the famously ruined city when Mount Vesuvius blew it’s top back in 79 A.D. There are a few tip and tricks we found along the way!
How To Get To Vesuvius
There are a few ways to get this to this famous location either by train, bus or a hike journey! You can ride a rickety but reliable commuter train from Napes to Sorrento. From the Pomepii stop, a shuttle van then takes you up the volcano to the end of the road and from there it’s a steep 30 minute hike to the summit. You can go up to the crater’s edge where steam vents slowly creep up. The last eruption was in 1944 so it’s only a matter of when it will erupt again.
