Description of hikes

Trail A (easy, suitable from 6 years): Easy trail through the heart of the Vesuvius National Park. Surrounded by nature, it is mostly flat and therefore suitable for families and people who do not want to face any particular height differences. The arrival point is a suggestive panoramic widening in the middle of the Gulf of Naples where we will stop to admire the beauty of the landscape and the starry night, and where a pleasant tasting of wine will be offered!

Trail B (medium, suitable from 9 years of age): a medium-difficulty trail, which descends into the majestic valley separating the volcanic edifice of Vesuvius from Monte Somma, stretching downhill on the outward journey to the destination of the itinerary, and uphill on the return. It is therefore suitable for the more adventurous, who want to experience the thrill of being surrounded by the geological and imposing nature of the volcano, walking stretches where observing the starry sky is truly thrilling! The arrival point is an evocative panoramic widening, surrounded by incredible lava formations, overlooking the Nocerino-Sarnese countryside and the Sorrentine peninsula, where we will stop for a pleasant tasting!
