Description

Our full day  private tour of Ischia is a wonderful way to experience the very best of all the island highlights including the fantastic coastal towns, beautiful garden s and natural hot-springs.  We can pick you up from a variety of points all over the island and/or arrange this service for you from Naples, Sorrento and the Amalfi CoastIschia is a large island and we often recommend a couple of nights here, though there is no better way to see the island of ischia than with a local! 

Highlights of our tour include:

  •  Magnificent photo opportunities all over the island including the panorama at the "Bay of Citara”. The historian D’ Ascia says that the water of Citara was placed by the Romans under the protection of Venus, a statue of Venus made of white marble was found but later destroyed. This is a beautiful beach with soft sand, clear, very long coastline and fully equipped, only its lower portion which is free. The sea is very beautiful, turquoise, crystal clear and transparent, perfect for swimming, as well as various water sports.
  • Historic points of interest including places where the legends stopped like Phaeacian and Ulisse, upon his return he was transformed into a rock as punishment. It is also said that two men tried to escape from the ship, but they too were turned into rocks, before they got on to the beach.
  •  Sant'Angelo d'Ischia is a small fishing village, south of the island has always radiated a special charm on its tourists, forever in search of a charming corner “uncontaminated and primitive”. The four houses under the Tower, and the old centre which starts from the small square with a handful of old houses partially restored, opening like a fan, invade the countryside of Madonnelle, Ruffano and Fondolillo have not really spoiled this remote corner of paradise.
  • "La Mortella” gardens  in Forio d'Ischia, where around 800 varieties of tropical and Mediterranean plants. The villa was designed in the '60s by the English architect Russell Page and bought to life by William and Susana Walton. It is possible to visit the villa where he lived for nearly three decades until his death on the 8th March 1983, Sir William Walton, one of the greatest contemporary British composers whose ashes are buried here in a rock on the promontory about 120 meters from sea level. From here you can see the beautiful panorama of Forio, a town on the island of Ischia, that in the '50s and '60s, became the preferred choice for writers, musicians and painters, among them Truman Capote, WH Auden and William Walton. The garden, which stretches over an area of about twenty thousand square meters, and the house-museum where the maestro composed his works are open to the public by the William Walton Charitable Trust (of which the honorary president is the Prince of Wales), the Italo-British charitable trust established by the widow of Sir William, Lady Walton, in order to keep up the memory of her husband. The William Walton Foundation, has as its principal aims, to make “La Mortella” a study centre for young talented musicians under the direction of leading masters of the world, and to open the gardens and the museum to the public.
  • Wine tasting at local winery in Ischia where you can sample a variety of white wines. 


This is an incredible full day private tour of Ischia with a local driver guide who will show you the very best of what the island has to offer.  For more information and to reserve, please send us an email to: team@italyvacationspecialists.com
