Photographer's Note

This point allowed the best glimpse into the crater of Vesuvio. Unfortunately, I was not able to avoid my own shadow.
From the Ercolano Station of the Circumvesuviana Train one can take the Vesuvio Express (bus) which takes you quite far up. From the bus stop it takes about half an hour walk to the edge of Vesuvio. There is a path around the edge of the crater, but one cannot actually see the very bottom of it. In fact, if you open the Google Maps and choose the satellite view, you can get a good imagination of the crater interior.
It is the second volcano I have climbed this year with my little daughter who managed to walk all the way to the top.
Sorrento is an amazing destination for holidays. I like the diversity of places you can visit. Naples has a great old town with spectacular churches, castles, palaces, museums, pizzerias, etc. Pompei and Ercolano are quite unique ruins. There are several islands with great charm like Capri, Procida or Ischia. The spectacular Amalfi coast is not far. And the volcano offers a great opportunity for a hike.
