A tour around the island villages

The island of Ischia has a total surface area of 46.5 square kilometers including the boroughs of: Ischia, the largest, Barano, Serrara Fontana, Forio, Lacco Ameno and Casamicciola Terme, all standing on the island’s wonderful coastline. If you decide to stay on Ischia for a few days, we advise you to follow this itinerary so that you can discover the history and culture of the island, together with its never-ending natural beauty. There are several means of transport you can choose from: you can reach the island with your car, taking the ferry from the port of Naples, or you can hire a car once you get there (or a scooter). Another choice is to move around using the efficient public transport service on the island.
  • Ischia
    Ischia is the largest town on the island and is divided into Ischia Ponte, the older part, and Ischia Porto Choose from among the hotels on Ischia that best suit your needs and take at least two days to visit the town, discovering its artistic beauty and walking along the beautiful beaches nearby.
    Some of Ischia’s greatest attractions are Castello Aragonese, Torre Guevara and the Sant’Anna cliffs.
  • Barano
    Barano is in the south-west of the island and includes many villages that have a strong, independent cultural identity, such as, for example, Buonopane and Piedimonte. A traditionally farming community, Barano is known for the fertility of its soil and for the many fumaroles and hot water springs nearby, like the one in the wonderful location of Marina dei Maronti.
    If you have a little time available, we recommend you make a trip to visit the village of Buonopane, famous for its bread-making as well as its Ndrezzata. The fragrance of the bread can be smelt every morning in the streets and squares.
  • Serrara Fontana
    This Borough spreads from the sea to the top of Mount Epomeo, a height of 789 meters. It has several areas, including Sant’Angelo. This pedestrian village is at the top of Sant’Angelo and has typically colorful houses and narrow streets reaching out over the sea.
  • Forio
    Many people think Forio is the prettiest town on the island. It is very characteristic and enjoys a superb view. Winding lanes, tiny white houses, a large Tower looking out onto the sea and many interesting churches. One of these is Santa Maria Visitapoveri, the ancient cathedral of San Vito and the Church of Soccorso that stands on the point with the same name.
  • Lacco Ameno
    Lacco Ameno lies at the foot of Mount Vico, near to Baia di San Montano. It is the smallest borough on the island. The Aragon Tower, built in the 15th century to defend the town from the Saracens, and the Sanctuary of Santa Restituita are two of the more interesting monuments.
  • Casamicciola Terme
    This town is I the north of the island and was known in Roman times as a thermal spa resort. It is still one of the most popular tourist resorts today for this very reason. Many famous people have stayed in Casamicciola to cure their aches and pains, including Giuseppe Garibaldi, Benedetto Croce, Henrik Ibsen who wrote “Peer Gynt” here and Alphonse Lamartine. Around Casamicciola you can relax on the beach or go on nature trips, discovering the beautiful pine forest known as the Bosco della Maddalena.
