Default Mt. Vesuvius hike

I have a few questions about this hike:

1. Are the trails very narrow?
2. Are there a lot of drop offs?
3. How would you rate the grade of this hike? Easy, moderate, or difficult?

Thank you in advance for your help.

I did this hike with my husband and teenage sons. Basically, you take a service from the Circumvesuvia station at Herculeneum to the base of the trail. There is a company right at the left of the train station. They run a shuttle bus up to the trail head. The trail is wide, no drop offs, gravel paved. A lot of people and not very difficult.

Yes, it is up hill all the way, but not difficult.

Never overload when planning a trip...you can't see and do all..pick a favorite place and go for it...you can always go back...trust me.Enjoy your trip.
