This is a completely flat stroll around the edge of a lake ‘Lago di Miseno’, allegedly named after a trumpeter from the Trojan army and once used as a basin where Roman ships where repaired. It’s a busy tourist village near the beach so it’s a well-used trail; you’ll be dodging cyclists, runners, the odd fisherman and locals out for a saunter mid-afternoon. It’s ideal for children and dogs (take a lead) and also links to a couple of other walks in the area. Cycas Cafe, where the walk begins, has the thickest, darkest, most delicious hot chocolate I’ve found, plus plates full of anti-pasta that you can help yourself to, for free, at any time of the day. But if you’d like a really good lunch – head to Esperia restaurant which is just up the road, then come here to gently walk it off. If all this seems too easy, do a circuit of the lake then link up with the Monti di Prochida – Coast Walk (see walk extension 3) which you can do backwards, skirting around the headland to Acquamorta and back, for a proper blast of fresh sea air.
