Actually it is one full day and one half day (we are taking the train from Florence, arriving at about 11 AM, will take our luggage to the hotel and I figure we'll have from 1 PM on). Our full day my wife and I are taking a tour of Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius so that will occupy pretty much the whole day (9:30 - 5:30). The question is what to do the half day? Based off travel books I have come up with going to the historic area and having pizza for lunch, visiting the Royal Palace, taking a tour of the Opera House, and in the evening visiting the Archeological Museum (our hotel is very close by). I'm assuming the Palace and the Opera House will each take about an hours. Is this reasonable, or are there better sights?
We wish to walk from Ercolano to the summit of Vesuvius using the network of paths in the National Park . We have the leaflet showing half a dozen or so routes but not sufficient details of the exact start point etc. Does anyone know where we can source details of ascent routes up Vesuvius? ( We know that most folk are happy to walk form the road end but we want more than 30 minutes exercise!)
