Caption: Mount Vesuvius. Crater of the volcano Mount Vesuvius, near Naples, southern Italy. The cone is 1277 metres high. Vesuvius erupted violently in 79 AD and buried the Roman towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum. There was a minor eruption in 1944 and the volcano is still considered active. The soil surrounding Vesuvius is very fertile, due to minerals deposited by the volcano's eruptions.
