Vesuvius Trip Report (#7584)

Went to top of Vesuvius when I lived in Italy and made the trek with my brother who was visiting. The guy all the way at the top (the last gift stand you can stop at) was kind enough to stamp his postcard saying he made it to the summit! A little hot and a lot of pollution. I recommend going more toward the May/June timeframe. It may be a little rainy but there won't be any smog obstructing your view when then sun does come out! Too hard to see clearly but still a great experience I won't ever forget. When it does erupt I can say that I was right there at the top and at the epicenter.
