Who we are
An excursion in the woods on the highest mountain of the Sorrento Peninsula. An experiential tour to learn about the history of the mountains, the ancient productions, the snow and wood trade as well as the most beautiful views of the Gulf of Naples, the Sorrento Peninsula and the Amalfi Coast from over 1000 meters above sea level.
The hiking route is of easy difficulty and lasts about 3 hours, varying between beautiful avenues under the beech trees to more exposed stony areas and, therefore, requires minimal equipment such as comfortable shoes and training for mountain excursions (we provide trekking poles for free) .
After about 2 hours, having reached one of the most beautiful views, we organize a picnic where guests taste local cheeses and meats, fresh bread, oil from the Vicenza hills and a glass of fresh wine.
Return to the starting point at the bar of the S. Angelo hotel for a final stop and a good coffee on the panoramic terrace.
A unique experience in the Sorrento Peninsula with the pleasure of the high mountain air because “the good air helps thoughts!”
