WI_e2120_014.jpg Vesuvio panoramaThumbnailsGolfo di Nápoli and Vesuvio

View from Monte Faito towards north to the town of Torre Annunziata and Mount Vesuvius. The main cone of the stratovolcano (Gran Cono, 1281 m) appears in the centre of the photograph, the caldera rim Monte Somma (1149 m) farther right. The area around Mount Vesuvius is intensely urbanized and cultivated, so that hundreds of thousands of people would be at risk in case of another major eruption.
