Luxury holidays in Vico Equense
Despite condensing la dolce vita into one small but perfectly formed town, Vico Equense, on the Sorrentine Peninsula, still flies low on tourists’ radars. And thank god, because this means you can enjoy its famous pizzas by the metre, farm-fresh meals, happy-making weather and historic treasures in peace.
When to go
The climate stays mild all year round, but from April through to October the weather is wonderfully temperate for swims and spa baths.
PlanesFly into Naples and you’ll enjoy one hell of a clifftop drive by the Bay of Naples to Vico Equense. The journey should take around 90 minutes.
TrainsTrains run direct from Rome Termini to Naples in just over an hour. Book tickets through Trenitalia (www.trenitalia.com). Vico Equense is also just five stops from Sorrento if you ride the Circumvesuviana train.
AutomobilesWith scenic cliff top roads and few public transport options between idyllic villages and towns, a car is a must here. Pick up some wheels at Naples airport.
