Vesuvius on Horseback

By November 23, 2012

Follow me on:

vesuvius picture, mount vesuvius If you're so bold as to want to climb up and peer into the volcano near Naples  that wiped out Pompeii in 79 AD, we have a Vesuvius Guide for you.

But, if you're young or young at heart, you can stay at the Hostel of the Sun in Naples and make the journey on horseback. It takes 3-4 hours. Less, one surmises, if the lava is chasing you down. But that hardly ever happens.

This is a good part of the year to be around Naples, especially if you like the Italian version of nativity scenes: Presepi.
