It is a glance of unusual beauty considering that it is a volcano. Particularly interesting for the frequency of its eruptions, Vesuvius was responsible for the destruction of numerous cities such as Pompeii and Herculaneum during the most famous of its eruptions in ’79.
It is the most dangerous volcano in Europe and one of the cardinal symbols of the city of Naples, but it is certainly not for fear that the people venerate the so-called “Good Giant”, but for the extraordinary fertility of its soil, from which the production of numerous typical products of the Neapolitan tradition originates well known all over the world, such as Lacryma Christi wine and Piennolo cherry tomatoes.
