Monte Epomeo information
Lace up those hiking boots and set out on a roughly 2.5km (50-minute) uphill walk from the village of Fontana, which will bring you to the top of Monte Epomeo (788m). Formed by an underwater eruption, it boasts superlative views of the Bay of Naples.
The little church near the top is the 15th-century Cappella di San Nicola di Bari , where you can check out the pretty majolica floor. The adjoining hermitage was built in the 18th century by an island governor who, after narrowly escaping death, swapped politics for poverty and spent the rest of his days here in saintly solitude. Have a peek inside, then head back down the hill, thankful that your saintliness doesn't exclude good wining and dining, Capri style.
