Drove to Monte Faito about 25 Kilometers from Sorrento, approached via winding road, narrow in places. It takes about an hour to get there passing through a national park towards the last 2 Kilometers. If you set the sat nav it may take you through...More

This is well worth the money. The views from the top are absolutely stunning. There are quite a few walks and established vistas up there plus a place or two to eat and drink. Just be aware that it can be a little cooler at...More

The cable car station is very handy if travelling on the Circumvesuviana. It is accessed from inside the Castellamare di Stabia station (which is just 20 minutes from Sorrento, 10 minutes from Vico and 10 minutes from Pompeii) and is just a few metres from...More

You buy your ticket for the cablecar at the train station ticket office. Then pass through the barrier to the platform as you would for the trains, turn right and walk 50 yards or so to the cable car building at the far end... More
