This full-day tour has a perfect pairing – a climb up to the crater of Mt Vesuvius followed by lunch and a tasting at a vineyard that grows Lacryma Christi wine. It’ll bring you closer to the awesome intensity of mainland Europe’s only active volcano and amaze you with life borne out of its volcanic soil.
First, you’ll travel by bus up the first 1,000 meters of Vesuvius – the active volcano that buried Pompeii in AD79 and still looms large over the Gulf of Naples. You’ll finish the journey to the crater on foot. And with top-drawer views from the top, you’ll want to take your camera for this one.
Then, you’ll discover all there is to know about a type of Neapolitan wine that’s grown on the slopes of the volcano, Lacryma Christi. You’ll visit a vineyard to tour the winery before enjoying a light lunch washed down with its very own, finest black label vino.
