The Vesuvius has a height of 1,270 m, located in the Bay of Naples in Campania, Italy. It is an active volcano Vesuvian type composite cone that bears its name. It is characterized by alternating eruptions of pyroclastic eruptions of lava flows, leading to an overlap in layers makes this type of large volcanoes reach.

This is a "hunchback" mountain property, consisting of a Grand Cone partially surrounded by the sharp edge of the summit caldera caused by the collapse of the past, and originally was higher. This structure is called Monte Somma.

The Gran Cono originated during the eruption of AD 79. For this reason, the volcano is also called Somma-Vesuvius or Somma-Vesuvio.

The caldera started forming during an eruption around 17,000 years ago, expanded by old and concluding with violent eruptions of 79. This structure has tomed its name from the term "somma volcano", which describes the volcano with a summit caldera surrounded by a recent cone.

The height of the main cone has been constantly changed by eruptions, but this is 1281 m. Monte Somma is 1,149 meters high, and is separated from the main cone by the valley of Atrio di Cavallo, about 5 km long. The slopes of the mountain are scarred by lava flows, overgrown with bushes and vines at high levels in the low. Vesuvius is an active volcano, although its current activity produces mostly steam emanating from the cracks at the bottom of the crater.

It is the only volcano on the mainland of Europe that has erupted in the last hundred years, although it is not currently erupting. The other two Italian volcanoes Etna and Stromboli islands are in.

It is about 9 km east of Naples and a short distance from the shore. Visually highlightsin the landscape that presents the Bay of Naples, seen from the sea, with Naples in the foreground.
