This section more completely documents our climb of Monte Cervialto. Monte Cervialto is the highest in a range of mountains (called the Picentini Mountains) that lie close to my mother's home town of Avellino. I thought it might be nice to explore some of the mountains in which my relatives grew up.
Avellino and Monte Cervialto both belong to a Irpinia sub-region of the province of Campania. The area is characterized by rolling limestome mountains and flat plateaus. In order to reach Monte Cervialto from Avellino, one travels east, towards the litte town of Bagnoli Irpino, and from there up to a high plateau called the piano Laceno. From here, it is a short drive to a wooded pass where CAA trail #13 takes you to the summit.
