Hiking to Monte Epomeo

The Monte Epomeo mountain - one of the extinct volcanoes that formed the island of Ischia and the highest point of the island. The height of 872 meters is not too impressive, but, through of this, climb to the top of the hill is not too difficult. The road to the top of the mountain starts right from the bus stop of the village of Fontana (map), but not Serrara Fontana, as informs the most of touristic portals.
