We drove our small campervan up here, found a stunning spot to park for free with an amazing view of the whole bay and we planned to hike the next morning. We enjoyed watching and listening to the white cows with bells on grazing the...More

No need to walk from the sea level or the village of Maranola for that matter. Drive up the road marked for Redentore just past and to the left of the parking area under the castle in Maranola. Good parking in the area of the...More

Not an easy hike but well worth the effort. Can be a bit tricky finding the trail's starting point but you'll be glad you did. Challenging climb to the summit. Lots of loose gravel and rubble. Not sure if the little ones would manage the...More

This was more than just an experience. It was truly amazing. It is a 6 mile hike to the summit, (3up/3down). Give yourself at least 3 hours at a minimum. I have attached photos of the map and parking location. It was difficult to find...More

Found the place thanks to the trip advisor reviews. You have to trust your car a little to make it to the bbq place through a steep dirt road. Once you are there, you walk for about 30 min to the summit where you have...More

Great view, but positon on the map is incorrect- it is ca. 10 km from Formia and you need to be prepared to drive some 5 km almost off road and then walk 30 min in the mountains but the view deserves the effort...

Looking up from Formia you can see the top of this mountain that is shaped like a church dome. Even from the valley you can see the statue of Christ, placed there in the year 1900 to commemorate the coming of the new century, on...More

Da maranola a Pomito come è la strada ? Mi spiego meglio due auto riescono a passare o la carreggiata è troppo stretta ? Mio figlio è principiante e non vorrei avesse difficoltà con la macchina . GRAZIE MILLE per l'aiuto.

Ciao! La strada nel complesso non è difficile, tenuto conto che è poco trafficata. Ci sono però alcune curve cieche in cui la strada è molto stretta e due auto insieme non possono passare. Se si ha sfortuna di incrociare... More

Visto che siamo in estate mi permetto di chiedere se si cammina sempre sotto il sole o si attraversano anche zone alberate ?

Il sentiero per raggiungere la statua del Redentore è quasi esclusivamente sotto il sole; in alternativa puoi scegliere altre mete o sentieri dove gli alberi di certo non mancano
