  • 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

  • Having rented a scooter I was lucky enough to spare me half way, but the remainder, namely at the end of the paved road (2 km), is of medium complexity and not suitable for someone who is completely out of practice or uncomfortable shoes. The trouble is, however, all the splendid views from the Summit just make sure not to miss the 2 views, slightly hidden behind the small church, the first is just ahead on the left (here you can see the famous carefully mushroom of Lacco Ameno and the second is inside the tavern. Once you go back and try the last door on the right. The best memory of Ischia!
