Mount Vesuvius is located on the east coast of the Gulf of Naples in southern Italy, at an altitude of 1281 meters. The violent eruption in 79 AD destroyed the ancient cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum nearby. Now the volcano and the ancient city have become famous tourist attractions in Italy. Mount Vesuvius erupted many times after that eruption. The last time was in 1944. A huge volcanic cone was formed. The crater was 600 meters in diameter and about 300 meters deep, in a semi-dormant state. To visit the volcano, it takes half an hour to climb from the bottom of the mountain to the crater. There is a fence around the crater that visitors can watch. The plank road is only built half a distance from the crater. The crater is charred black with white smoke at the bottom. Out.

Because of the reputation of shaking Vesuvius, I only dare to shoot from a distance, so as not to repeat the tragedy of Pompeii. Standing in Naples overlooking Mount Vesuvius, he was so quiet and beautiful.
Mount Vesuvius is an active volcano and a very famous scenic spot. There are dense vegetation growing around the volcano. This environment is also caused by volcanic mud. There are also many tourists who come here to visit. There are also many big rocks.

Mount Vesuvius is an active volcano on the European continent. It is located on the east coast of the Gulf of Naples in southern Italy. The largest volcano observatory in the world is located here. The mountain is still smoking. The mountain road is not tiring but it is full of volcanic ash. It is recommended to wear shoes suitable for climbing, not white. The scenery on the top of the mountain is good, probably because of volcanic ash, which is a bit hazy.
