I recommend that you go there whether by road or with the funicular. The panorama on Castellamare di Stabia, Napoli and the Vesuvio is amazing and there are great restaurants on top. It is easy to walk around and the nature is refreshing and calming.

Well worth the drive to the top of Monte Faito! Past tall mature trees, and spectacular rocky landscapes, to draw dropping views of the Bay of Naples, Vesuvius, Capri, Ischia, Sorrento... A peaceful, idyllic, location, tourist free too!

We can only echo other travellers' enjoyment of this activity. We would never have known about it without TripAdvisor, as our tour rep in Sorrento made no mention of this attraction...perhaps because she could not earn any commission. The café at the Hotel Sant Angelo,...More

Next to the train station at Castellammare is the Funivia, which takes you to Monte Faito. The funivia is cheap, the views are fabulous, and there is plenty of space to avoid the crowds of Sorrento, Pompeii etc. Also interesting flora and fauna on the...More
