I was in Italy and stayed in Napoli for a couple of days. When you’re there you have to go to a vulcano or to a burning ground such as the Phlegrean Fields. Well…I did both!!
And I did it on 1 day. In the morning I went to Pozzuoli and the afternoon was spend climbing the Vesuvius!
The Phlegrean Fields
How to get to the Vesuvius from Napoli
I went to Ercolano with the train and got on a tour that started near the station. They will drive when the bus is full and when it’s in season that will probably be after every train 🙂 I couldn’t pay with card so I had to get some money out of the ATM,that was about 5 minutes walk down the street and the bus waited for me!!
Central Station at Napoli
Visiting Vesuvius – Ercolano – Italy
The bus drove us up the first part of the vulcano. The rest is there to walk!! If you are disabled there is an option to go almost all the way up with a car I believe.. I saw a car passing me when I was walking up… It was kind of steep at some point….it was a climb and that is why I liked it even more!!
Busy in the bus, going up the vulcano
I saw this statue on the side, half way up the vulcano
Walking the last bit, Vesuvius – Ercolano
The way up was quit a hike. Really enjoyed that!It was really cloudy going up. You just walk into the mist…
But on the other side I had a great view.
So when you’re down …it could be quit different on the other side and you could get a great view even if you think it’s not the weather for that!
And yes, in the end it’s just a hole…
Well yeah….it was a vulcano….now it is just a big hole where once was the lava…
Also in the clouds
It was a great hike and walk with ofcourse great views over the Italian landscape!
