Help reading Pompei-Vesuvius bus timetable

Jump to last reply

I'm planning to visit Vesuvius and Ercolano on a day trip from Sorrento in May and think it will be better to go up the volcano first.

There's a lot of info on the web about how to get up to Vesuvius with some saying the best place to start off from is Ercolano Scavi. Coming from Sorrento, this seems to be the best place. Apparently there is a private bus company, Vesuvius Express, which charges €10 for the return trip but they only give you a fixed amount of time up there (like 80-90 min) and you must take the bus back at the allotted time.

I found that there is a public bus run by eav srl. which goes up Vesuvius, also for €10 from Pompei. Here is the bus timetable - http://www.eavsrl.it/web/sites/default/files/orariautomobilisti/Pompei_-_Vesuvio.pdf

On the top of this page, it says Pompei-Ercolano-Vesuvius and listed are several stops. So I assume that I can board in Ercolano.

Questions:
Which of these stops is the one for Ercolano?
And if we boarded at Ercolano, would anyone know if it will be cheaper.
Also where do I get tickets?

I am assuming that with this bus we will not be restricted to 90 min. We may not do the long walk but I don't want to be rushed just in case.

Also hope there are going to be toilets at the park entrance!:)
