Vesuvio Express

Bus in Herculaneum (Ercolano)

The easiest way to reach Vesuvius is to get a bus from Ercolano up to the crater car park. Buses depart from Piazzale Stazione Circumvesuviana, right outside Ercolano–Scavi station on the Circumvesuviana train line. The journey time is roughly 20 minutes each way, with an ample 90 minutes allowed at the top of the volcano.
