    I would like to use the EAV bus from Naples to Vesuvio.
    Could you please advise where is the bus stop at Molo Beverello?
    The timetable says Via Marina but it’s quite a long road with many bus stops so I’m quite confused.
    I found a bus stop in front of the ferry terminal, called Acton- Molo Beverello, also the red sightseeing bus stops there. Is it possible that EAV uses this stop too?

    Dear Sitabus,

    I have just read this article and it is really useful.

    I am wondering if the bus service is still operates? Since due to the recent fires only the north parking place reachable on the Mt. Vesuvio.

    I am planning to take this bus from Corso Garibaldi, can you give me a clue which bus number should I look for?

      Hi Kovaku, if the fires still in place I doubt that the bus will run but you should check with the local drivers because it will change day by day. The last information we received about the Vesuvius bus was that they are suspended from the 14/07/2017 and no other notice were received. The number is Q.1000

    Hello SITA people!

    Is the bus line still active? I plan to use it on August 25, which is Sunday. Does the bus leave Piazza Garibaldi at 09:25 and 10:25?
    What is the exact address of the bus station?
    Where do I buy tickets?


    • sita_admin Post author

      Dear Erez, there are many bus lines on the page. Which one do you refer? Also you will be able to buy on board (Extra-charge) or from the re-sellers usually tobacconist / bar / newsstands. Regards.
