TOILET TROUBLES AT VESUVIO!
Despite being pre-warned about the state of the toilets on vesuvio, I was left with no option but to use them after our trek to the crater. I had been beforehand but it is much cooler up at the top and I think my bladder constricted somewhat!
I have to rate these toilets as the worst I have ever encountered in Europe, they don't look that bad, it is the smell that makes you physically sick.
The toilets in question are the ones at the back of a bar/shop near the car park.
As we returned to our coach we noticed some portable toilets. Maybe these were in better condition, or were they worse?!
Try not to let this put you off because it is a beautiful place to visit, just take some warm clothing and remember to hold your nose or face the consequences!
Watch Your Step
When you go to Pompeii, make sure you take some good shoes. The streets there are so old that the stones that are in it stick out. Also, since the volcanic eruption they have a film of ash over them and they are real slippery. I almost fell while I was there. eek!
Walking Down Is As Steep As GoimgUp
The side of the mountain presents as great a difficulty for going down the mountain as for climbing up, since it is quite steep/ Be sure to rent a walking stick before waling up.
