Island of Ischia

Ischia is an example of island life done the Italian way. It’s the biggest island in the Bay of Naples, laying out medieval castles, clifftop botanical gardens, sandy beaches, hot springs and lively harbour towns along its coastline.

The centre of the island is another story altogether. Here, Mount Epomeo scrapes the clouds. Hikers tackle its sloping walking trails, which wander past caves and pine-green forests. You’ll even find the occasional vineyard clinging to the rocky slopes – usually family-run affairs with swooping views over the Bay of Naples.

Inghams operate a telephone Rep service on the Island of Ischia.

Things to do in resort


This little island between Ischia and the mainland is one of the Neapolitan Riviera’s best kept secrets. A stunning landscape of pastel-coloured houses lead down to the quanit harbour where you can sample the freshest seafood.

La Mortella Gardens

These award-winning botanical gardens are an exquisite blend of exotic flowers and ornate fountains, all carefully arranged to allow glimpses of the glistening Mediterranean.

Thermal Spas

Ischia’s volcanic origins means the island is home to numerous thermal spas. Many hotels have wellness centres using the natural waters, or head to one of the thermal gardens that combine pools with lush green surroundings.
