The course will be held in Vico Equense. Vico Equense marks the entry point to the Sorrento Peninsula when driving away from Naples and has a very different feel to the city's suburbs. When you approach by car from Castellammare di Stabia you climb a hill with some stunning views across the Gulf of Naples. Entering Vico Equense you're met with more dramatic clifftop vistas and a pretty town characterised by its bars, restaurants, hotels and trendy shops. 

In Vico Equense itself there's a lovely beach area where the water is crystal clear and just a short distance away is the neighbouring town of Marina di Equa. In fact many of the photos you see of "Vico Equense" are in fact of Marina di Equa because it's from Vico Equense that you can get such a great view down to the Marina area. 


Participants will stay at the at Aequa Hotel (****) in Vico Equense. Surrounded by the green, suspended between sky and sea, the Aequa Hotel lies in the enchanting and amazing Sorrento peninsula. From its wisteria – shaded terraces you can admire the Gulf of Naples with the Vesuvius and the islands of Capri and Ischia. It is not far from the most beautiful beaches of the area and has a park with swimming pool and solarium.
