Testimonials

“A really enjoyable trip I’ll never forget.”

We went up in the tank bus and the tour guide who drove the bus was really friendly and let my brother sit in the front. We went with 2 adults and 2 children the children aged 7 and 9. We went on the train and then got tickets when we got their. The day before we had gone to Pompeii. We walked for about 10 minutes to the top and then their was a shop and a guide in English who told about the Pompeii abruptions which helped us understand Pompeii more. This was an amazing experience and we will never forget it.


“A really enjoyable trip I’ll never forget.”

We took the train to Pompeii, and exit at Pompeii Train station. When we arrived, we already saw the shuttle bus of Busvia Del Vesuvio, we bought the ticket from their office at the building on right hand.
The shuttle bus took us to the entrance of the park, and change to the car to go up the mountain. After another 30 minutes rides, we need to walk another 30 minutes to the mountain top. The walk is not easy, but I would say it’s well worth it, you can take photo of the city of Pompeii and Napoli from the top. At the top, the guide will also explain to you the volcano history of the Mount Vesuvio, then you will have around 70 minutes, to take pictures and walk around, including the time you walk back to the bus.
