Monte Faito al Molare
Among the moltitude of paths. which allow you to explore the Monti Lattati, the one that leads from Monte Faito to Monte Molare (also known as Monte San Michele) is certainly the most approachable and unforgettable. It is a path, of moderate difficulty, towards the highest point of the Anti-Apennines of Campania; for novices it is an excellent path to improve their skills, thanks to the presence of appropriate signs, while for the more accustomed it will be a pleasant walk in the shade of centuries-old beech trees and limestone rocks.
In the first part of the route, what the landscape has to offer will often be covered but, just over halfway to the top of Monte Molare, it will be possible to admire one of the largest landscapes in the region.
The highest peak of the Lattari will let you admire the profile of Vesuvius, the Gulf of Salerno with the Cilento Mountains, Punta Campanella and, on clear days, the islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida.
As previously reported, the difficulty of the trail, allows everyone to approach it but we do not recommend the path if the weather is snowy and frosty to anyone without equipment and experience
By car, the best way to reach the beginning of the path is by following the road Strada Statale del Faito (SS269) to the Belvedere del Faito; here it is possible to park the car before starting the trail
Starting from Castellammare di Stabia it is possible, by paying, to take advantage of the Monte Faito cable car which will lead directly to the Belvedere.
