Tour Description
From funicular railway station, we head for the mountain peak. Our position gives us the opportunity to admire the Vesuvius which dominates Sarno River plain. After that, we lose ourselves in the centuries-old beech forest. Surrounded by a timeless spectacular atmosphere, we continue to the ''neviere'' zone where high beeches enclose particular pits. Those are natural pits in which they used to squash accumulated snow, in a not-so-distant past. In this way, snow was well preserved near the cool beeches. Then,all that ''freezed'' snow was cut in some blocks in order to be moved to valley during hot periods. The snow factory finished at the beginning of the 20th century, but still nowadays beeches show its signs.
