Mount Vesuvius

Mount Vesuvius
Italy, Mount Vesuvius, July 1979

An old picture with my wife and our three daughters at the border of the Vesuvius crater. Today it is not possible anymore to come so close.

Mount Vesuvius is a stratovolcano in the Gulf of Naples, about 9 kilometres east of Naples and a short distance from the shore. It is one of several volcanoes which form the Campanian volcanic arc. Vesuvius consists of a large cone partially encircled by the steep rim of a summit caldera caused by the collapse of an earlier and originally much higher structure.
Mount Vesuvius is best known for its eruption in AD 79 that led to the burying and destruction of the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_Vesuvius

Thanks all for visiting, the nice comments and the favourites!

Oh! I remember being there very long ago. I've no head for having a straight drop beside me so didn't dare get as close as most of the people - but enough to see the deep hole.
