Half a day for the excursion is needed. The breathtaking drive up reaches the height of a thousand meters, going very close to the lava flows of the last eruption.

From the spot reached by bus a walk of about half an hour is needed to get to the peak of the crater where some alpine guides will show people around. The excursion can be combined with a visit to Pompeii - Herculaneum - Naples etc

NOT TO BE MISSED: A visit to one of the ancient manufacturing cameos and corals factories.
