Thomas Cook Archives

“Tourists calling at Naples should not fail to visit [the] magnificent and historical volcano which can be done safely, comfortably and expeditiously by the Mount Vesuvius Railway, the property of Thos. Cook & Son [Cook senior is seated in the middle of the front row, above, with a tourist party at Pompeii in 1868], which conveys passengers to within 150 yards of the crater. The fare charged includes services of necessary guides at the crater.”
