Vico Equense is it steep everywhere??

Hi there, hope to be travelling here in September 2015.

My husband Has a bad back and knee, and i was wondering where would be the best place to stay that is easily accessible?

Also is the town center flat? or is it quite steep?

Not sure if this town will be good for us to visit given it looks like there may be a lot of stairs around and steep.

Thanks in advance

Hi Emma M,

Sorry to see you got no replies to this topic.

Did you by chance happen to visit Vico Equense or any other surrounding town?

We are planning a trip to this area (Sorrento, Vico Equense, Sant'Agnello) and one in our group also has a bad knee. Therefore we'd appreciate any info on steep roads, stairs, etc.

Many thanks.

Use Google street view - that should give you an idea.

Thanks, GSV gave me an indication. The town does seem to be steep.

We spent a week in Vico in July and found that most of the town was quite level and very easy to walk around in. There are steep walks down to the beaches, but from the train station to the main square and to almost any business in the town there is only a very gradual slope. If you want to walk to neighbouring villages, then you will usually find substantial slopes. We walked from the train station to our hotel at the opposite end of the town with all our luggage with no problem (but an alternate slightly shorter route would have involved many steps and steep roads). For someone with knee issues, Vico is easier to maneuver than Sorrento is. Just be careful that your hotel is not on the beach or up a hill.
