Just a few stills from my flight around Vesuvius. The 4k video is to big to upload and i'm no good at video editing. With flight conditions I wasn't able to get a full shot of the volcano at distance.
Couple of interesting things:
Wind at that height was bad
Magnetic interference was bad
Kept getting swallowed by clouds
There was an angry Dutchman that didn't like my Mavic

Pictures look great! I'm heading to Naples next month and am looking forward to seeing this from the sky as well. I've familiarised myself with the Italian drone regs but can't find any info on flying around Vesuvius... I know you can't fly over crowds; can't fly around noted tourist attractions and can't fly in certain parks. Did you have any trouble while flying up there?

My wife said she saw a sign that said no drones but I never did see one. Your best bet is to follow the trail till it ends and sit on a bench there. You better be ready for a climb because after the parking lot it's about 30 to 40 minutes hike to the top. If youre taking the train into town there will be taxis and van sitting outside the depot waiting. Look for an old man in a small white van. He was really nice and waited at parking area for us and even gathered up some lava rock as souvenirs. Dont buy any rocks from the shops there.
