  • The island would be incredible if it were not so much exploited touristically. Its numerous environmental emergencies are often overshadowed dll ' excessive urbanisation with particular reference to the hotel facilities. One point remains unspoiled and frequented only by those who love nature (in effort to access it): mount Epomeno. You reach the peak with rock-cut trails and routes of low difficulty (if you have the right shoes). A bit of a pain to climb that is largely outdated and forgotten by the panoramic views of immeasurable beauty.

  • A trip to Monte Epomeo cannot be when you visit the island dropped from Fontany about 3 km up the Hill, the route is not difficult. We chose a steep precipice descent around the kosteíka of Santa Maria al Monte until Forio, this path back was more challenging.

  • Starting from Serrara Fontanna the ballad is very easy (takes 1 hour) and offers a magnificent view on the Gulf of Naples and Capri. However if you leave of lacco Ameno: District of Fango then Church San Giuseppe and the via Crateca. From here a very nice trail in the Woods (quite well signposted) takes you 800 m higher to sommet.Comptez 3 h and the end is quite difficult
