Vico Equense

Known to the Romans as Aequa, Vico Equense (Vico) is a small clifftop town about 10km east of Sorrento and just five stops away via the Circumvesuviana train. Largely bypassed by international tourists, it’s a laid-back, authentic place worth a quick stopover, if only to sample some of the famous pizza by the metre.
