between the cities of Pompeii

, one of the loveliest being Marina di Equa, west of a defense tower constructed in the 17th century. Another great hike, but slightly more difficult, is the old footpath to Positano
. Footpaths used to be the only means of travel and communication on the peninsula, and many, including this one, have been traveled upon for thousands of years.

These are excellent locations to have a picnic and to experience daily agricultural activities. These locations are also famous for its beekeeping farms.
