The most beautiful and biggest island in the Gulf of Naples, Ischia is one
of the most famous seaside and touristic spa centres of Italy and the world, it is also famous for its unequalled natural beauty, for its mild clime, termal waters, modern tourist facilities and hotels and lastly for its 'wine'. On the island the viticulture has millenarian origines The
technique, is like the greek traditional one, in fact is different from that
one used in the middle of Italy and in the rest of the Campania province.
For long periods the economy of the island was based on the viticulture that
influenced the life and the uses of the inhabitants. The cultivations on the
isle are extended from the coasts to the steep mountain slopes where the
vine is cultivated on proper terraced fields.White Grapes Biancolella,
Red Grapes Guarnaccia, Pedirosso o Pere e Palummo
Six are the communes of the island: Ischia, Casamicciola Terme,
Forio, Serrara Fontana and Barano, with about 50.000 inhabitants.
Ischia is the most important. Into the harbour area is the trading part of
the town and another important area is that one around the 'Castello
Aragonese' which is called 'Ischia Ponte', a picturesque ancient fisher's
village.Forio is the second major town of Ischia according to population number and
importance. It stretches between two promontories, Punta Caruso (at Zaro)
and Punta Imperatore, between the considered most beautiful beaches on the
island and into the metallic green of the vineyards which cover the slopes
of Mount Epomeo, descending into a scene of incomparable beauty. Forio
covers 13 square kilometres and has a population of 12,638 inhabitants; it
ranges from 0 km above sea level to 700 in the Falanga areas. It is divided
into the hamlets of Forio and Panza with other peripheral villages
(Monterone, Cuotto, and Citara).
It is the only town which has preserved its entire historical centre with
its tiny streets, churches, sighting towers and monuments - all of which are
unaltered from their original construction. The main monuments are: the
church of Soccorso (pictured on one of the Italian stamps) dedicated to
Santa Maria della Neve, the Torrione (big tower), the church of San
Francesco da Paola, the church of Arciconfraternita' of Santa Maria delle
Grazie known as Visitapoveri, the Basilica Pontificia S. Maria di Loreto,
the church of San Vito, the parish church of S Leonardo Abate, S Maria al
Monte. You should visit the exotic garden of villa Gancia, the garden of
Lady Walton; the troglodyte house dug into a mass of tufa and the spa
gardens Poseidon and the Bay of Sorgeto near Panza which, due to its hot water wells, is the
favorite place in any season for a midnight dip.
However, the natural beauty of Ischia does not finish there. Everything from
the sea to the mountain - including its harbours, the small bays, its
convenient beaches and ports, the high rockface along its coast, the
vegetation, the variety of the plant life, the pine trees and the myriads of
multi-coloured flowers - make Ischia one of the most beautiful islands of
one of the most beautiful countries in the world. When you ll be there you
ll feel what others ( Luchino Visconti, Pierpaolo Pasolini,
Sir William Walton, Eduardo De Filippo, Liz Taylor and Richard Burton
Elsa Morante, Alberto Moravia, Renato Guttuso, Auden, Pablo
Neruda, Pietro Nenni and the jet-set Jackelin Kennedy
Aristotele Onassis) just felt and made of this island theyre second
