Famous for its eruption in AD 79, Mount Vesuvius is located in the city of Naples in southern Italy and has erupted many times since. Today it is regarded as one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world due to a population of 3,000,000 people living close to it. It is therefore the most densely populated volcanic region in the world.
