The cable car to the top of Mount Faito was a lot of fun. It is located right next to the train station in Castellammare. In fact you purchase your tickets in the station. I assume during the summer months, you use the separate ticket...More

A quick trip to Monte Faito in a cable car. The view are great all the way. Nice spots for a picknic at the top and also several hiking trails. The cable car can be really crowded!

It is easy to get to from Naples station on the Circumvesuviana line as the cable car station to Faito is alsovat the Castellammare di Stabia Station Unfortunately I think it only runs April - 0ct though.

It varies according to the time of year. At the moment, the first one is at 8.25am and the last one at 20.15. I recommend that you check the timetable online though.
