Spa and hiking paradise in the Gulf of Naples

Ischia, the largest of the three islands in the Gulf of Naples is stunning due to the diversity of its nature, its fantastic views of the sea and surrounding islands as well as its idyllic sandy beaches. Ischia is famous for its curative thermal springs which can be traced back to the island's volcanic origin and which partly reach temperatures of one hundred degrees. It is mostly German vacationers who come to the health spas and for years they have been the largest group of visitors to the island. 

But not only those who love bathing and swimming, hikers, too, get their money's worth on the golfing island: along numerous hiking trails, you can discover the varied landscape with its richness in species. It is absolutely worth the effort of climbing the 789 metres of Monte Epomeo, again and again you will be overwhelmed by breathtaking panorama. Filmmakers, too, have become aware of the beauty and charm of Ischia: again and again the island was chosen for an impressive setting. Thus, not many years ago, the remake of „The Talented Mr. Ripley“ was shot at Ischia Ponte.

La Isola Verde: Hotels in a marvellous landscape

In Italy, Ischia is also known as „Isola Verde“, the green island. Those who leave the popular tourist tracks and venture into the heartland and the still largely authentic south will soon come to understand this name.

As the volcanic soil is extremely fertile, the old tradition of wine-growing on the island has been revived. Large parts of Ischia are covered by fragrant macchia. The chestnut woods Bosco di Falanga on the northern slopes of Monte Epomeo are a particularly beautiful sight.

Due to the ferry traffic, the island's economic centre is the commune of Ischia with its districts of Ischia Porto and Ischia Ponte, where well over one third of the round about 56 000 inhabitants live. Other communes are Casamicciola Terme, Lacco Ameno, Forio, Serrara Fontana and Barano.

Historic sights near your holidayapartment

Ischia has many sights to offer, so we can only name a few here, e.g. the impressive Castello Aragonese in Ischia Ponte. The fortress located on a rock off the coast and surrounded by a wonderful Mediterranean garden can look back upon a long history. Fortified as far back as the 5th century BC, the fortress was enlargened as of 1439 and connected with the main island by means of a bridge by King Alfonso of Aragon. It was a place of refuge for the island's population in times of need and in case of enemy attacks. 

Those roaming this fortified island along its stairways hewn from the rock are rewarded with wonderful views of Ischia, the neighbouring islands of Procida and Capri as well as the Gulf of Naples. The cemetery of nuns in the crypt of Chiesa dell’Immacolata is worth seeing, but at the same time strange: deceased nuns were left to decay, seated on stone benches. The nuns met there regularly for prayer and to keep in mind the ephemeral nature of life on earth.
