Vesuvius Experience

Since its first eruption in 79 AD, when it buried the towns and inhabitants of Pompeii and Herculaneum, Mount Vesuvius has dominated the lives of those who live on the Bay of Naples, its brooding bulk forming a stately backdrop to the ever-growing settlements that group around its lower slopes. There have been more than a hundred eruptions over the years (see box opposite), and the people who live here still fear the reawakening of the volcano, and with good cause – scientists calculate it should erupt every thirty years or so, and it hasn’t since 1944. It’s carefully monitored, of course, and there is apparently no reason to expect any movement for some time.
