On August 24th of that year the volcano Vesuvius erupted destroying with meters and meters of ashes and pyroclastic materials the entire Roman city of Pompeii. During this tour we will explore the ruins that the archaeologists found 17 centuries later and we will walk around the crater of the dangerous volcano. The Vesuvius is in a quiet phase and from the top of crater during the clear days is possible to appreciate the best view of all the bay of Naples.
