This is a ROUGH hike. The leaves made it slick but the view was SO worth it!!! Highly recommend hiking sticks and some good hiking shoes!

Pretty steep climb all the way up makes for a somewhat dangerous descent. Make sure the it hasn't rained any time soon before your hike. There have been times where I've seen quite a few wild boar in the area and I've had to cut off my hike early due to them.

Must be 5 star, given the height and views, both into the crater and over the bay of Napoli. We paid €3.10 each way on the public EAV bus from Pompeii Scavi train station, then €10 each for trail entry. Money well spent. On a clear day you feel like you can see forever....

Crowded, lovely ocean and cliff views, uneven underfoot but clearly marked. No dogs allowed.

We hiked up from the parking area which adds up to an approximate 4km uphill hike to the summit. If you prefer to cut your effort in half, you can take a tour bus that will drop you off near the ticket office (price was 10 Euro per adult). Very crowded and commercialized trail, offering decent views of surrounding areas and the crater.

Being able to hike a massive, active volcano overlooking the bay of Naples and the Campania region- was AMAZING.  The views were beautiful and was definitely worth the occasional scattered crowd. Hike is suitable for all levels of experience. There is little to no shade except at the designated posts along the end of the trail.  It can become dangerously windy and COLD (even in the dead of summer) so definitely prepare to climb in layers. Sunscreen and eye protection would be advised. Enjoy a glass of wine at the very top and take in the beauty that is Vesuvius!

HikingRockyScramble

shortly into the trail is a steep incline, that sets the tone. the trail is a continuous incline, with some areas very narrow, slippery, and several trees downed. the return trip is even trickier as the loose leaves become slick and it's a slippery slope. I only made it halfway up in 2.5 hours, and back down in 1.5, but I am recovering from surgery and not at full capability. The trail is mainly wooded and there aren't many views until you get higher. trekking poles and good grips (possibly crampons) recommended.

A lovely walk from the carpark to crater that is a little over 2miles.

Great trail in a volcano. It’s an easy walk, but no shade after the initial section (so can be hot in the summer). Beautiful views if the day is clear.

The hike up Mount Vesuvius is beautiful! You really can’t go wrong here. Cars park at a lower lot and busses park higher to the crater, so if you come by car it will be a longer hike. The park itself was closed when we came but we were able to get up and see the crater, just couldn’t walk all the way around it. Highly recommend! Gorgeous views!

Honestly this was so easy! We saw all ages and body types making their was up to see the crater. Unfortunately we went on a day that was very foggy so we couldn’t see inside but it was super cool to be so close to such a historic site!! Worth the 10 euros!!

there is a bus (costs about eu3) from the train station at Pompeii or Orcelano that takes you to the trail ticket office. cost for trail is eu10. trail is about 300 m up the road from ticket office and you need to have those tickets to start the trail. Don't take a taxi. and don't take a taxi going down either. these stop a bit further down at parking lot and don't always go all the way back to a train station. tickets for bus are bought on board. schedule for bus going back is not frequent and remains a mystery.

Amazing views from the summit, but the last hour to reach it seems very long (very climb trail)

We cut it by half, walked from Hochmuth and then took route 25 to the pass from the Leiteralm. While being quite steep ascent and descent are easily manageable. We even met couples with kids. Most beautiful and same time most complicated part is route 23 to the Mutspitze, though still can be done without any special equipment.

Really should update the hike. It is only accessible by paying like 17€ for one hour hike... And you will do only a part of the loop. You can try to access the close part. But people will not be very kind then ^^ Great view though.

This is a fun walk but make sure you do it like my wife and I: 1. Don’t plan the trip, just get up and go from Napoli. 2. Take a taxi but don’t bring enough money because you have to pay double when you leave Napoli in a taxi... so 3. Spot a trail head and get out half way up the road to where most others hike from. 4. Find the trails are all closed on the way up due to last summer’s fire. 5. Proceed to walk all the way up the road and use €20 of our last €25 for tickets to access the crater. 6. Hike up to the crater and talk about how cold it is and what a long walk back to town you have with no money. 7. Spend our last €5 on limoncello shots. 8. Talk a taxi into leaving his customers to drive you down quickly before coming back to get them. It was a shame that all of the trails through the nature reserve leading up/down the mountain were locked up. Also, the access to do the full crater loop was closed off so that was a bummer. All things considered, we had a great day together and great memories to kick off our honeymoon! If in the area, it is definitely worth going.
