Welcome to Ischia

Most visitors head straight for the north-coast towns of Ischia Porto, Ischia Ponte, Forio and Lacco Ameno. Of these, Ischia Porto boasts the best bars, while Forio and Lacco Ameno the prettiest spas and gardens. On the calmer south coast, the car-free perfection of Sant’Angelo offers a languid blend of a cosy harbour and lazy beaches. In between the coasts lies a less-trodden landscape of chestnut forests, vineyards and volcanic rock, loomed over by Monte Epomeo, Ischia’s highest peak.

Then, depart in a bus to drive 3,280 feet (1000 meters) up Mt. Vesuvius, where you will be escorted by a specialized guide to walk to the summit. Mt. Vesuvius is the best-known volcano on earth.
