    Garbage

    Garbage

    South Italy has not foreseen suficient solution to eliminate the garbage. The waste reception centres are full and they must export the "rifiuti" to Germany.
    In Summer, the concern is worst because there are more population with the tourists.
    For this reason, the slopes of Vesuvius are covered of garbage.
    The beasts and the wind scatter it everywhere.
    It is the main problem of the volcano

    Procession

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On the day that i went to Vesuvio, i saw this procession walking up behind me, so i stopped to take a picture and watch. They carried this statue of the Virgin Mary up to the crater and then had a mass up there. I do not know why they did this, but i suspect that it is a mixing of pre-christian and christian beliefs. The whole time i watched this, i could not help to think that this procession and mass somehow served the purpose of preventing the volcano from erupting.

    Toilets

    He leaves the door open to show his toilets are clean.
    That makes the difference with the others.
    Price : 0.50 euros. I guess it is now a subtantial part of the income.
