This volcano, Vesuvius, a dominating feature of the Neapolitan landscape, is known throughout the world. Its fame started in 1884 with the inauguration of the funicular railway to the top of the mountain (originally 1336 meters high, reduced to 1200 meters after the eruption in 1906). To the music of "Funiculi' funicula", millions of tourists have visited Vesuvius, an awe-inspiring vision of petrified lava. It was this volcano which destroyed the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum in 79 AD.
Vesuvius National Park of great geological and historical interest, has been established in order to safeguard the values of the territory, to use suitable means to allow a correct integration between man and environment, to promote environmental education and scientific research activities. The Vesuvius National Park was also born from the need to defend the most famous volcano in the world: the Vesuvius, a typical example of fence volcano consisting of an external truncated cone, the extinct Mt. Somma, with a crateric perimeter which has been mainly destroyed and in which there is a smaller cone represented by the Vesuvio, which is still active. The territory, rich in historical-naturalistic beauties, boasts of a unique agricultural production for the great variety and originality of its tastes.
At Vesuvius there is tourist accommodation available in hotels, farm holiday, farmhouse, residence self-catering accommodation, b&b, rooms for rent, holiday homes, camp sites and tourist villages.
