Mount Vesuvius is certainly the most important and the most interesting volcano existing in Europe.Famous for having buried, but also preserved for us, the two most famous archaeological sites (POMPEI and HERCULANEUM) it owes its importance to its imposing size being the biggest on continental Europe (not mentioning Etna in Sicily) with a max height of 1281 mt and diameter of the top cone (600mt) Through the centuries many have been the eruptions, but never that catastrophically, like the one of 79 A.D. The last eruption was in march 1944 during the second world war. After that one the volcano stopped smoking from its top. In 1880 a cable-car (funicular) was inaugurated and for the ceremony the famous Funiculi' Funicula' song was composed.
