Named for the beech trees that blanket its slopes, Faito Mountain inside the Lattari Mountains Regional Park offers some of the best hiking opportunities in the area. A road and cable car run up to the 3,750-foot (1,143-meter) peak, where the views of the Bay of Naples are stellar.
From the peak, hiking trails lead past churches and ancient cisterns and through beech and black pine forests, where it’s often possible to spot birds, butterflies and small mammals in the wild. Keep an eye out for the pinguicola plant, the only carnivorous plant in Campania.
Most of the trails on Faito Mountain begin near the cable car station at the peak. The cable car is currently out of order, so the best way to reach the peak is by bus from Vico Equense.
