Due to renovations in Via Campanella, from July 6 to December 31, 2015 (Ordinance no. 150/2015), the path to Punta Campanella is closed to transit (vehicles and pedestrians).
From the blog of Ruth Peake:
One of the most popular hikes in the area of Massa Lubrense, from Termini to Punta Campanella, which is also part of the Athena Trail, is now off limits until January 2016 due to work being carried out on the path and in the area around the tower. A locked gate by the shrine at the point called Cancello will bar all access not only for vehicles but also for pedestrians.
In his latest blog, Giovanni Visetti proposes an alternative route so that walkers will still be able to enjoy the amazing scenery and flora between Punta Campanella and Monte Santa Croce at the top of the ridge.
Alternative route: Giro di Santa Croce
This path, in combination with “Le Selve”, forms the Giro di Santa Croce (in red on the map): a path that gives the opportunity to access the top of the ridge and avoid having to make a round trip from Mount San Costanzo.

Video by Giovanni Visetti
“The video begins with the arrival to the area “Vuallariello” (the highest point of the path Le Selve) via the staircase in the rock and ends with the detour to the viewpoint Campo Vetavole, following the Alta Via dei Monti Lattari for the last hundred meters.”
