MAGMAGEDDON in Naples: rock with the BEST or roll like the rest!

General description

Damned icelandic volcano! You are stealing my show...don't you know that I 've been one of the most famous volcanos in the world since the past times??I began my career destroying 2 cities, while now you are just coughing!But I'll take care of it, I' ll share my heat with neapolitan BESTies and after this Autumn Course, we'll see who is the BEST volcano in Europe.

People, have you ever felt like sleeping in a crater?? have you ever wondered about the structure of a volcano and earthquake origins?? are you, even more, interested in engineering solutions to hinder effects of these natural phenomena?

While autumn rages on Europe, sipping Limoncello, you will learn what you read before!!

Be ready for the BEST experience of your life, feeling the BEST spirit of hot and sunny Naples, an awesome city of south Italy,sorrounded by the wonderful landscape of the Vesuvius and the islands of Capri and Ischia, not far from the ancient city of Pompei, and discover the hospitality of neapolitan people!

Come to see what's "SHAKING" in Naples :) I'm waiting for you!!!

Kind regards and "hot" kisses

Mr. Vesuvius
