Ischia and Procida

Ischia is the largest island in the Gulf of Naples. It is situated at the west of Napoli and north from island of Capri. Ischia offers holiday resorts, thermal springs, healing sands and cheap hotels. It is almost as popular as its famous neighbouring island of Capri. The Ferry docked in Ischia Porto, which is a port in the modern part of the island’s capital – Ischia. The historical part – Ischia Ponte – lies a few minutes walk away. While the northern and western coastline teeming with life, the southern tip of the island’s quietest. Here lies the village of Sant’Angelo, dominated by an extinct volcano Monte Epomeo. From its peak at a height of 788 meters you can find a fantastic view of the Gulf and Naples.

In the shadow of Ischia and Capri is small, only 2.5 km long and fewer tourists visited island of Procida. However Chiaiolella offers good swimming and, like Ischia, also cheap accommodation. In a neglected town of Procida is the main ferry port, Marina Grande.
