No car in Vico, will we be sorry?

We have reserved a car for our two week stay in Italy. Our first four nights we will be staying in Vico Equense at an Air B& B. It has a designated parking place. We plan in one day in Pompei and one do on the Isle of Capri and one more leisurely day. I am beginning to get the sense that driving around will be very challenging. I know we can take the train to Sorrento and Pompei, but will we be sorry not to have the flexibility of having our own car during the down times? What about getting to restaurants and such? Our trip is planned for the end of September.

Vico is a typical tiny Southern-Italian town, getting around isn't difficult without a car. There's bus service of course ( eavsrl.it/web/…20viceversa.pdf ) and Vico itself is perfectly walkable.

I think it depends on where your B&B is located. If you're in the heart of Vico I agree, a car would be unnecessary. There are further out sections of the town, however, that would be inconvenient on foot (due more to elevation change than distance, which is only about a mile and a half).
