Definitely worth doing. Very interesting. Gets dusty so don't wear your nicest shoes. Very hot in the summer. Excellent to combine with a visit to the history museum in Naples to view artifacts found in Pompeii. Very good and popular hike.

Take the train to Pompeii when you exit the train, buy a ticket for the bus to the off-road bus to take you to the the trail head. the bus picks up in-front of the train station. bus ride is about 10 minute first bus then another 10 -15min on the off road bus. Hike is pretty easy but has a steady grade. There are good views of the gulf of Naples along the way up and at the top. But you don't have to go all the way up.
