“Worth the bus journey!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Be prepared for a local bus journey like no other. Lots of corners and you obviously just get higher and higher up the mountain BUT to be fair it just added to the whole experience as we were in hysterics laughing. The views are just out of this world! I have never seen views like that before without being on a plane! And only 1.60€ return! Bargain! We were the only tourists!!

“Far from the maddening crowd”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

You can take the local bus up to Monte Faito or the cable car. A beautiful walk, higher than Vesuvius, through beech trees. Watch out for the goat herd foraging through the trees.

“Very narrow but pretty road”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Pretty views but the drive was a bit scary. It is pretty much single lane on one side, expect to have to reverse if a bus is coming

“Stunning views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

We drove to this place from Vico Equense, which took about 20 mins. We stopped at the main observation point, which had a parking,a hotel and a snack bar and of course the observation area... . The views on both sides of the hill are stunning- Vesuvio, the bay of naples and the city below... On the other side there is a great view of the amalfi coast and an old hut on the hill, which is a perfect setting for taking pictures. The hotel has a restaurant and a snack bar where they made us the very nice fresh sandwiches for lunch. There is a woodland walk slightly dented by the fact that there are 5 or so communication towers built along the path. You can take this path or drive the further 4-5 km to another parking lot from which you can walk to the top of the hill and an old church. We were timed out for the latter, but we heard its nice...
