Very nice experience and possible even with children of 10 and 8 years. Very well organized both in transport and in the accuracy of timetables. For the ascent to Vesuvius I recommend comfortable shoes, suitable clothing, a hat, sun cream and a few bottles of water.

Very easy that the van drops you off and picks you up everywhere on time. Otherwise it is difficult to find public transport. This bus ride was therefore a great luxury. I thought it was on the expensive side for the rather short trips.
