Vesuvius has been quiet since the eruption of
January/March 1944. When will the next eruption be ?
Mount Vesuvius lies on  the Bay of Naples, about six miles east of Naples and a short distance
from the shore. It is best known for the eruption of AD 79 that led to the destruction of the
Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum and the death of between 10,000 and 25,000 people.  
The Naples area is the most densely populated volcanic region in the world.
