The Vesuvius, the only active volcano in Europe, is at south-east of Naples. It is divided into two summits, the Mount Vesuvius and the Mount Somma.

In the Eocene it was an island surrounded by sea, then in Pliocene it was united with dry land and its height was 2300 meters. Nowadays its height is 1281 meters and the circumference of its crater is about 1500 meters.

The first historic eruption was in 79 a.C. when Pompeii, Stabia and Herculaneum were destroyed and buried in ashes, then others eleven eruptions there were, the last one in 1944.

Now the volcano is quiet and a lot of excursions are organized to go and see the grandeur, the majesty and the charm of this mount.
