After descending from theMonte Epomeo and looking into the Church of the village of Fontana, I took a bus on the CD ring line, hoping to get to the village of Serrara. However, at the second stop, the driver started a lively conversation with a passing local resident, apparently his friend or relative. Five minutes later, he finally remembered about the passengers and said that the kaput bus will not go any further, get out and wait for the next one, which will be in 15 minutes. No visible problems with the vehicle were observed, and the driver calmly continued the conversation. From this I concluded that the stories about the peculiarity of local transport still have a basis, although in the first days of my stay on the island, I did not find any confirmation of this. Passengers, without expressing any displeasure, acted differently - someone remained seated, apparently knowing that the conversation would end sooner or later, someone got out and sat on a bench at the bus stop to wait for the next bus. Well, I decided to walk to my destination on foot - according to the Navigator, it was no more than half a kilometer to Serrara, and the road went downhill.
On the territory of Serrara Fontana is a picturesque forest area "Falanga", and thermal resorts - a favorite vacation spot of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and her husband, who spend their annual summer holidays here.
In the center of the village is the administration of the commune of Serrara Fontana and a couple of churches and an old building of a former monastery. At one time, Serrara was the seat of the Bishop of Ischia.
The square ends with a viewing platform-a Belvedere (on the map), which offers one of the best views on the island.
