It can be a little confusing to know what the Pedamentina is. Simply put, it is an ascending stairway path of 414 steps from the 14th century that connects the Corso Vittorio Emanuele up to Piazzale San Martino atop Vomero Hill. In other words, it’s a really good workout. The public transport listed here are meant to take you straight to the top of the hill and you can work your way down if you wish. Either way, the drool worthy views stretching away as far as the eye can see in every direction is worth the climb up. And since you’re on top, you might as well head over to Castel Sant’Elmo’s rooftop terrace for an even higher viewpoint. The path is superbly charming.

  • Historical stairway to connect the amazing Castel Sant'Elmo and the Certosa di San Martino, with the historical center of the city, dating back to the 13th century. The view is stunning, suggestion is, if you'd rather walk than climb, and you enjoy viewing the landscape VS steps, to take the subway to vanvitelli stop or the funicolare di montesanto to the Morghen stop, visit the castle and the Certosa and then climb down to the old town using the Pedamentina stairway. Bring your camera with you!!

  • Salita della Pedamentina La Pedamentina è un complesso sistema di discese gradinate; con i suoi 414 scalini collega la Certosa di San Martino al Corso Vittorio Emanuele. Questa strada fu iniziata nel XIV secolo dagli architetti Tino di Camainoe Francesco de Vito ma assunse l'aspetto attuale soltanto in seguito; storicamente fu anche usata come mezzo di offesa: più volte venne dotata di sistemi di difesa contro chi intendeva assediare Castel Sant'Elmo. Oggi rappresenta un'importante testimonianza storica ed urbanistica; la Pedamentina è inoltre interessante anche da un punto di vista paesaggistico, in quanto costeggia gli orti e i giardini della vicina Certosa, oltre ad offrire pregevoli vedute sulla Baia di Napoli.
