Can anyone tell me a bit more about the walk up to the top of Vesuvious please? I’m not particularly fit so I’m worried it might be too much for me? I do quite a bit of normal walking but if it’s a steep climb I might struggle?

Thank you

You'd have done better to post in the forum for Naples, but you can get a good idea of what it's like walking up VesuvIUS, from where the buses leave you, from this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o1szRDHBv64
