Tip: take the cable car up and walk down - the best views are from the top parts of the stairs and outside the Castello. It’s a bit of a walk up so bring water. In the middle of the day the shade is limited and at the start of the day it’s quite hazy so view for photos could be affected. Easy to find using maps.

I was looking forward to taking these stairs down from Vomero as I heard it is a must! However I was disappointed. The stairs were full of rubbish and broken glass. There were some good views but that was is it.
To me it was not worth the trip.Maybe if they clean it up a bit and make the journey up and down a bit more pleasant.

Enjoyed the views for sure. Easy ride up on the funicular and got a little lost until we found Ft Elmo. Taking the stairs down was easy. The start of the descent had an excessive amount of broken glass so you had to watch your footing as it made it slippery. I would not recommend walking up unless your are very fit. Enjoy!

The steps connecting Castel Sant’Almo and the city sprawl below allowed us to descend towards the sea amidst the green slopes. The 414 steps offer choice panoramic views that change at every stage. The views over the bay is rewarding as are the dilapidated buildings and slum housing. Glad we were in a guided tour.

A stairway built centuries ago, it retains some of its elegance today, but really needs a touch of tender loving kindness, a good clean-up and basic signposting. There are over 400 stairs, but they are wide and shallow and are interrupted with short paths. The views across Napoli and the bay are great. The stairway ends up in a somewhat non-descript area.

After the excellent views from Castel Sant'Elmo, the views from the steps are a little disappointing. However, the main reason for the low score is that we couldn't enjoy the view due to the inordinate amount of rubbish, especially broken glass, that littered the first 250m or so of the descent. There were many black plastic bags awaiting collection, and there was dog muck. So, all in all, we spent the walk watching where we put our feet. What a shame!

Before the funiculare, this was the way to get up and down the hill. I read that there are more than 400 steps but I was too busy to enjoy the experience to count. All along the zigzag steps there are houses where people go about their everyday business. There are also a few street shrines along the way. At the end of the steps you follow a narrow winding road with lots of Vespas until you get to Chiesa di Santa Maia dei Sette dolorosa. from te steps of the church you look straight down the street that takes you through the Spanish Quarters and the market into the old town. I you have time and the ability spoil yourself and go down this way

We had been visiting St Elmos castle and decided to walk back down via these steps. From the top the views are amazing but be warned that there is broken glass everywhere where it seems people sit on the wall then throw all their bottles over the side.....such a shame as you are to busy looking where to walk then seeing the view. do not wear open toed shoes!!!
After maybe 300 metres and after the steps have wound down from the top the glass disperses and you can start to enjoy the views on the way down winding between the houses and local neighbourhood. It's a long way down and I would not recommend it if you have any problems with you mobility. At the bottom it's not really well signposted where you are or how to get to the central historical area, be sure to take a map.

A lovely walk down the historical center. Its recommended to take one of the funiculars up to the castle and then have a walk over here to the Pedamentina. Once you reach the end, its less than 5 minutes walking to reach the beginning of the Spanish Quarter and all the shops and restaurants.

Your visit to Volmero isn’t complete without a trip up the Pedamentina San Martino. Built in the 14th Century, this zig-zagging 416-tread stone staircase leads 650 meters up the hill to Sant'Elmo Castle and the Certosa di San Martino complex with beautiful views along the way. The foot of the stairs can be less than obvious. To find the entrance to the Pedamentina, walk the Corso Vittorio Emanuele. When you reach a large orange-ish building, inscribed “Istituto Tecnico Commerciale A. Serra”, the entrance is exactly opposite, on the other side of the street.

Once you have reached the top, you'll discover upscale shopping, some nice restaurants, bank ATMs, and the funicular station that will take you down the hill the easy way if you like, right back to where you started.
