Vesuviusin Naples, Italy

#2of 2 places to visitin Naples
One of the most dangerous active volcanoes on the planet. On its count are more than 50 eruptions and it can wake up at any moment.
Vesuvius, Naples
A huge volcano is the visiting card of Naples and its main attraction. At its foot and on its territory there is a national park, which has been protected by UNESCO since 1995.

Thanks to volcanic fertilizers its slopes are strewn with flowering gardens and all kinds of greenery and the near lying land give an incredible harvest.

It seems that the locals are already accustomed to a dangerous neighbor and are not afraid of its whims.
