Among springs and volcanoes
A unique excursion for the variety of landscapes and glimpses that give the walker a strong experience from a sensory and emotional point of view, enriched by the tradition that lives on in the land recovery project in the Cannavale area. Impossible to lose it.
It starts from the horse stables in Fiaiano and goes up the opposite stairs carved into the mountain. Given the strong exposure of this first section, the predominant vegetation is that typical of the Mediterranean scrub, in which the fragrant essences of myrtle stand out enriched by the aromas of wild mint and thyme, lavender and other aromatic plants.
You then arrive at the "White quarry", so-called due to the strong presence of pumice and lapilli and from there, continuing the ascent, you then enter a chestnut wood at the foot of Monte Trippodi (502 a.s.l.), until you reach Piano San Paolo, an old fossil beach, evidence of the submerged past of a part of the island.
Leaving the wood and starting the descent, the landscape opens up, offering a complete glimpse of the Gulf of Naples, with the Phlegrean islands, the Phlegraean fields, Vesuvius and the Lattari Mountains.
It is the path that leads to Cannavale, an excellent example of a return to the peasant traditions of the past, where there will be a visit to the estate and where it will be possible to taste strictly 0 km products.
The route ends with the return to Fiaiano (near the Decò supermarket).
