Most Beautiful Active Volcanoes in the World

Vesuvius Volcano, Italy

Mount Vesuvius is another active volcano that rises over Naples Bay. It is best known for its gas eruption, as it was back in 79 when the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum were destroyed. Most of the victims died suddenly of suffocation. In the recent past, Vesuvius poured out its lava in 1906 and 1944, causing widespread damage and casualties.
Today, about 3 million people live in the eruptive zone of Vesuvius, but as local authorities says, they have a plan for evacuation if necessary.
