Route: Sea to Vesuvius (Italy)


Vesuvius (1281m) is normally climbed by driving to within 200m vertical of the summit.  However, this route (submitted by Thomas Summer) starts at the sea (Gulf of Naples) at Torre del Greco.  We would suggest that the exact start point and route is flexible, as long as you begin at the sea and go to the crater (no one is allowed to go to the true summit).
