If you would like to go trekking in the nature on breath taking itineraries you can choose among three main aternatives

18. Vesuvius and HELL'S VALLEY

Vesuvius and HELL'S VALLEY. The most dangerous of the active volcanoes in Italy and in Europe seems sleeping peacefully in its dominant position in the centre of Gulf, just like a body that embraces with its arms this mirror of water. Suggestive and full with scars for its changeable aspect, it's present in the imaginary of the whole world, and, of course of Neapolitans. It’s possible to reach the base of the crater by bus or car, and then there are 25 minutes of easy walking till the top of the crater.


Length of the visit: up to the crater 1 hour.
Ticket for the crater 6 euros
Trekking tours can last from 1 to five hours
The standard tour costs 150 euros

19. Monte Nuovo

The volcan which arose in only one night in 1538, is now a dead crater of 180 metres covered by a green vegetation and allows suggestive sights of the whole volcanic area of Campi Flegrei. Nowadays is naturalistic park

Length of the tour: 3 hours including a visit to the volcanic lake D’Averno
Cost 110 euros

20. Solfatara and Cratere degli Astroni

The last active crater of the Campi Flegrei is the Solfatara, where it's still possible to see some volcanic activity as gas emissions and gives an idea of how Campi Flegrei were in the past when volcanic activities were much more present in the area ( crater of Agnano and Lake of Averno). Astroni's Crater is another dead crater with a wonderful vegetation that made it a hunting area for the Kings od Borboni Family. Today the reserve is under the protection and management of WWF.
