Some of the hotel’s services and facilities:
Ischia is not just about spas; it also offers seaside, archaeological and general cultural tourism. The archaeological and historic repertoire is very rich (interesting finds are preserved and can be admired in the Archaeological Museum of Villa Arbusto in Lacco Ameno), but the island’s main attraction is the Aragonese Castle, which lies in the centre of a fortified citadel on an island opposite the town of Ischia Porto, which it is connected to via a bridge. This castle was used for many years as a refuge for the population when they underwent frequent attacks from corsairs.
Ischia, which is the biggest island in the Gulf of Naples, is part of the Phlegraean island group, together with Procida and Vivara, and it is connected to the capital city of the Campania region via an efficient ferry service, as well as to other places, particularly in the summer months, like Capri and Procida.
If there is enough time, a trip to the Amalfi Coast is definitely worthwhile. The coastline is approximately 50km long, running from Vietri to Positano, passing through towns like Cetara, Ravello and Amalfi, and it is, by and large, one of the most famous tourist destinations in the world. Not far from Naples is Vesuvius National and here you can climb up to the summit of the volcano and admire a landscape consisting of the Gulf of Gaeta, the Sorrentine peninsula and Capri, as well as the immense crater. The archaeological sites Paestum and Pompei are also easy to reach from the capital city of Campania.
