Wow! What a fantastic place! We took a short trip on the metro to get here from Naples and are so glad we did. It's very easy to find; straight up the hill from the metro station. Entrance to the volcano cost 7€ and we thought this was very cheap considering what you see for that money. It really does feel like you're standing on an alien planet with the smell of sulphur, the smoke billowing out of the ground and the boiling pools of mud and water. Very strange! There are also some nice hiking routes nearby if that's your thing. On the day we visited there was only one other couple there wandering around, even though it was in the middle of July. I would recommend this place to everyone, but especially for those who, for whatever reason are unable to make the climb up to Vesuvius's crater. At Solfatara you actually get to see more volcanic activity and it's more easily accessible.
