Faito trek tour
The FAITO TREK TOUR consists of a tourist package that has as its object a naturalistic excursion to Monte Faito, to reveal the beauty of the paths, to show a unique and rare panorama, to let you feel the sensation of being surrounded by nature and greenery, breathing pure and fragrant mountain air ..
We reach Monte Faito with an exciting and breathtaking journey by CABLE CAR, during which, in just 7 minutes, we move from Castellammare at an altitude of 1100 meters to piazzale del Faito. It will be the minutes that you will remember all your life, little by little that the cable car proceeds, you will gradually see the buildings, then the sea and the whole city, and then the valley, all green of the cliff that goes down, as if to say, PRETTY COOL!
Our group of expert guides and in collaboration with Sorrento Hiking, will hold an explanatory briefing on the experience together in the square.
From the cable car square we set off on the crest of the mountain.
We observe, from the top of Monte Faito, Vesuvius which dominates the Sarno plain.
Leaving the ridge, you dive into the centuries-old beech forest.
Wrapped in an atmosphere suspended in time, we continue towards the ” Neviere ” area where tall beech trees surround particular pits. These are natural pits where in a not very distant past, the snow that fell in winter was crammed. In this way it was well preserved in the coolness of the beech trees.
The snow cut into blocks was then transported downstream in warm periods.
The snow industry ended in the early 1900s, but the beech trees still show signs of it today.
At the end of the path you can enjoy a platter with the scents & flavors of local products.
It is possible to participate in the FAITO TREK TOUR on Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays of each week.
