Well we got the bus from the main port to Serrara Fontana where there are signs saying essentially 'this way up'! If you are not wearing sturdy shoes you are buggered; if you look at my photos you will see what you are up against going up. The views when you make it are outstanding and you will heartily quaff a couple of cold ones at the bar/cafe at the top afterwards. This mountain is a 'Horst' in geology-nerdy-speak.

As people have said before, this is quite a strenuous climb due to the steepne climb and very narrow rock gulleys, but worth it in the end! I got muddled at one sharp left bend where another track, with steps, took you up further to the right This actually only took you to the restaurant, so be warned as the steps were hard work and nearly finished my legs off! I wouldn't try the walk after any rain as think it could be lethal on the rocks you climb over/around as well as the manmade gullies. The leaves were slippery enough. Leisurely lunch afterwards at the wonderful Miseillo Sapori restaurant (2nd down from the top) made the experience complete - best brushcetta ever!

We took the bus around to Fontana and walked from there. I was quite surprised that the walk was not as hard as I had anticipated. It took me about 50 minutes to the top. The start of the walk and in fact about 3/4 of the way is more or less just a steep narrow road with a few cars and motorbikes passing by. You will also pass 4 restaurants so plenty of opportunity to rest and get water. Some people got lifts this far. After the restaurant La Porta di Agartha (very strongly recommended) the road narrows to a track, so narrow that you have to stand aside to allow others to pass going the other way. At some points you are walking up a narrow passage gouged into the tufo. There is a bit of a scramble at one point, I did keep stopping, but it's the steepness that got my breath a bit - my friend waited at Agartha but he is 71 and not good with uneven ground. Luckily someone advised me as I was walking, once you arrive at the restaurant at the very top, go through the door to the back, turn right and go out of the door on the right and you come to a view point. Go the other way and you get to the real top - I didn't do that as I suffer from vertigo and I had superb, clear enough views from where I was. This is a great walk best done when not too hot and earlier or later in the day when cooler. There is some intermittent shade when walking. Plenty of room in the restaurants in October. I was wearing a skirt and walking sandals, but I saw people at the top in sling backs, shorts - and also two young children skipping up, really if taken slowly and steadily, anyone could do this. Coming down is actually marginally worse as there is more danger of slipping, there are a lot of leaves on the paths. I absolutely loved it.

The hike was capitulating. We took an Uber to Nocelle and hiked the entire path which took us about 2 hours and a consistent pace. We took a bus From Burmeno to Amalfi and treated ourselves to the Half Moon beach club for the afternoon. Highly recommend you wear hiking boots and hike from Nocelle since that’s an uphill climb and easier on your knees. Water, hat, snack and sun lotion is a must!

A rugged climb of several miles to reach the summit. Nice little restaurant at the top with tasty food.
