  • The ascent of Mount Epomeo, for those feeling of walking round-1.ora 1.30 to return is an experience not to be missed, tour to do possibly in a peaceful sunny day. You arrive by bus CD (it comes back with CS completing round the island) to Fontana Center, then walk, a first stretch of paved road, then a path is not always easy, take a stick and proper footwear. In the latest Rocky stretch where you reach the peak there is a passage slippery quite dangerous, as exposed on the void, takes a lot of attention, administration of tourism should provide it with a safety handrail, so proceed with more peace of mind, the view from the Summit is a spectacular and suggestive at 360° over the island and surrounding islands to the Amalfi coast. Near the peak there is a shelter-Restaurant with a decent kitchen, sitting at the table, they continue to be captivated by the scenery. I felt that whoever did the descent from Mount Epomeo directly in Casamicciola. says that the trail is quite unpleasant, undesirable to non-experts. for this reason, think before you venture out. Total cost of the Tour 2.40 €

  • The hike is moderately challenging but not impossible. Also because I got to the top we can restore the hut, a restaurant and bar (the cave of Fiore). Worth it, from the top you see a unique panorama, hugging the coast, from North to South; If the day is clear you can see the pontine Islands, legendaryfin Gulf of Naples with its islands and Vesuvius.
