It was a hot summer midnight I set out from the city of Pompei aiming to have reached the top of Mount Vesuvius by dawn, in a trespassing operation. The long way it took me to reach the mountain foot passed through the two succeeding towns of Boscoreale and Boscotrecase, in which I took the photos you will see in this album. Unfortunately, soon after I made it to the mountain foot and started my ascent, I was spotted by an army patrol and was forced to turn back ingloriously. Read here the full story of what happened in that magical summer night near Mount Vesuvius. And here the story of the successful trespassing operation of the day that followed.
