Nature & Culture

Winding mountain paths lead to places that boast a primitive charm, such as the Falanga woods on top of mount Epomeo, where ancient green tuff constructions lie hidden amidst the vegetation. Solitary or guided island tours, trekking, mountain bike, boat trips, diving and fishing: there is ample choice for those who wish to explore the most striking glimpses of the island. Finally, a full-immersion in the subtropical ? ora at the “La Mortella” gardens is a must.
As in the past, today the beauty of the landscape, the rich thermal basins and the luxuriant territory have led many artists and learned scholars to choose Ischia as their residence. Truman Capote, W.H. Auden, Laurence Olivier, Jacqueline Kennedy and Werner are only a few of the many personalities who spent most of their time in Ischia during the “grand tour” period, the purpose of which was to discover Europe and its beauty. Today, Ischia conti- nues to attract personalities from the world of entertainment, culture and politics, also due to important events such as the Ischia Journalism Award for one, now at its 32st edition. Culture integrates what the island has to offer in terms of the seaside, accommodation and thermal treatments. The Aragonese Castle Museum, the Sea Museum at Palazzo dell’Orologio, the Biblioteca Antoniana and Michelangelo’s Tower at Ischia Ponte; the Civic museum and the Geophysical Observatory 1885 at Casamicciola Terme; The Pithecusae Museum at Villa Arbusto and the Santa Restituta excavations beneath the Church of the same name at Lacco Ameno; Villa La Colombaia owned by Luchino Visconti, Villa la Mortella belonging to Sir William Walton, and the G. Maltese Museum in Forio.
