Nestled in the waters of the Gulf of Naples, Ischia is an internationally renowned tourist destination that offers crystal clear sea, unspoiled landscapes, places of cultural interest and many other surprises. Its very jagged coasts are characterized by an alternation of headlands, inlets and long beaches where sea water mixes with the hot water of the thermal-mineral springs that flow a few meters from the shoreline. The island, of volcanic nature, hides a very high concentration of thermal basins and a great variety of waters in the subsoil that make it the “capital of European thermalism”.
There are over three hundred spas, places of well-being where you can spend regenerating stays in the name of health, beauty and self-care. Ischia is also known as “the Green Island” due to the presence of numerous pines and a very rich Mediterranean vegetation which in spring gives life to a spectacular explosion of colors and scents.
The vineyards, arranged on terraces, add a particular touch to the Ischia landscape. Among the numerous beaches stand out that of the Maronti, that of Citara, renowned for its beauty, that of Lacco Ameno, the characteristic Bay of Sorgeto and those of Cafiero and Bagnitiello. In addition to the charm of nature, the inhabited centers reveal the many faces of Ischia and its treasures of nature and art. Always very lively, the Port is full of shops, cafes, restaurants and characteristic taverns where it is possible to taste local specialties and listen to Neapolitan music. In the town of Ischia, the capital of the island of the same name, you can visit the Aragonese Castle, the Sea Museum and the Antoniana Library, specializing in the history of the island. The pleasant town of Casamicciola is famous for its thermal baths and the workshops of potters and potters.
