The Great Cono

The Great Cono

$0 $0 per person

Going up the path of the Gran Cono is a unique experience, for the thrill of walking along the crater of an active volcano and for the view of Campania and Lazio you can enjoy.

The main route runs along the western side of the crater rim, while an alternative route, under construction, will allow you to travel along the entire circle of the crater with a guided tour.

The beginning of the path is located at the altitude of 1,000 of Erodano, where the ticket office is. In order to follow the path, you must be accompanied by the alpine and volcanological guides of Campania. The climb continues gently for about 800 metres and is rewarded by a series of panoramic views which become more and more evocative along the various bends.

The view is on Valle del Gigante, which in spring turns yellow with the presence of brooms. The valley separates the Gran Cono from the ancient caldera of Mount Somma, traced by the imposing cognoli of Sant’Anastasia (1,086 metres), Punta del Nasone (1,132 metres), up to the cognoli of Ottaviano (1,112 metres).
