The paths of the Vesuvius National Park

The Vesuvio National Park Authority has created in stages "The Paths of the Vesuvio National Park", based on 11 paths with a total walkway length of over 60 km. The interventions concerned the mitigation of the risk on the tracks and the preparation of the latter through specific signs for each path, describing the main naturalistic, geological and historical emergencies you can encounter while walking.
