Story by Pieter Matthys from Heverlee, Belgium, submitted on 07/08/2012
Hello, same question as Pete: I want to climb Vesuvius but need to rent a bike. I have contacted rentalbikeitaly but they say climb is much too hard so you have to book a guide...I don''t need a guide because i''m a trained cyclist..So does anyone know if bike rental in torre del greco is possible? thanks

Story by francesco from ercolano, Italy, submitted on 22/07/2011
hello, i''ve been climbing this mountain hundreds of times in my life (i''m 39 now). pendences are a little overrated (average I think is above 7%) and last 2 km are the hardest and around (not far) 10%.
landscape is wonderfull.
be carefully during summer not to start climbing after 9 am or before 6 pm if weather is good, becouse of the heat.
not many places to find water along the way, just some restaurant...

I have a question. Do you know where I can hire a bike in Ercolano/Torre del Greco area? I hope to visit Pompeii, Herculaneum & Vesuvius. I cant find anywhere online, and wonder if there are any bicycle shops I could contact. Many thanks Pete
