We are in Sorrento at the moment but we cant find any information out about this attraction. We have visited in the past and think it's a lovely walk.

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 some narrow short cuts. To avoid this follow the directions to Naples and take the road marked with a brown sign to Monte Faito. We found this soon after crossing a bridge. Please drive right to the end where there is a bar/cafe with toilet facilities. Once you are there take a good walk around the bar and enjoy one of the best views I have seen over many years of travel to various parts of the world. The panoramic view is simply breathtaking. Please ensure you drive up on a clear day. On one side you get a clear view of Sorrento, Amalfi coast and beyond, including the island of Capri while on the other side you see the city of Naples and Mount Vesuvius beyond. Please make sure you walk up the steps on your right as you approach the cafe and over some socky area where you get a fabulus view of the city of Naples.

Would love to have given a review of a lovely sunny day but the cable car closed at the end of September, I wish the website had told us that before we wasted our time and money getting to the station. Monte Faito's loss was Herculaneum's gain as we spent the rest of the day there instead.

Monte Faito, at 1100 metres (3600feet) and almost the same height as Vesuvius at 1281 metres (4200 feet), will be the highlight to your visit to Castellammare di Stabia, located between Sorrento/Vico Equense and Pompeii. The summit provides spectacular 360° panoramic views of both the Gulf of Naples as well as the Sorrento Peninsula and the Amalfi Coast with the Island of Capri in the distance. The ascent will take 8 minutes in the cable car that holds 35 people. The first departure is at 9.35 am and the last return is at 16.25. Do check the details as the service does not operate during the late autumn, winter and early spring periods. You can take a car to the top via Vico Equense. The charge is €8 and in my opinion the best investment you can make during your stay on the Sorrento Peninsula.

We stumbled upon this by accident when looking for things to do near our hotel (Towers).

You board the cable car from Castellammare station on the Circumvesuviana railway line. The journey up Mount Faito is nothing short of spectacular.

It feels like this should be much better promoted! Absolutely recommend for anyone staying in the Sorrento area!
