Points of interest:
Vesuvius: is a Somma-stratovolcano. It is a glimpse of unusual beauty in the panorama of the Gulf, entered in the collective imagination of Naples. It holds the world record for being the first volcano object of systematic studies, by the will of the reigning house of the Bourbons, studies that still continue by the Vesuvius Observatory. Structure from which the Americans took as example for the Hawaiian observatory. Its moderate height allows it to be easily reached causing many travelers to climb it even by bike.
Pompeii: included two different worlds: on one hand, there are its ruins and on the other hand its christian spirituality. This city is famous for its, Stabie, Oplontis and Ercolano’s destruction because of the eruption of Vesuvius in the AD79, that laid them. A huge tragedy that allowed us to preserve an important section of common life in the greatest empire of antiquity.
