    Less popular than the neighbouring island of Capri it is a great place to spend a few days in the sun.
    If you want to vist Naples and prefer a more quiet environment try to stay in one of the small hotel in Ischia Porto. Fast ferries 'Aliscafi' take you back to the mainland in less than 30 minutes.

    Vist the Castle in Ischia Ponte. Apart from the terrific view of the colourful houses and the pittoreque fishing port you''ll also get some glimpses of damp prison cells.
    There is also a hotel in the Castle, but have not tried it.

    so....

    continuing on the theme of my sycophantic appreciation of Italy....

    yes Naples.....the sea.....the wind in my hair.....
    the DOG I fell on!


    Yes, it doesn't pay to get too dreamy eyed, the dog was built like a brick S**t house, but still it looked at me with evil intent..I didn't ask to enter its personal space.....lol



    So, we approach Ischia..

    and its getting dark,

    the lights are twinkling and the horizon is almost cliched in its picture postcard appearence...

    I was really tired, but once we hit Ischia, I fancied doing something...

    Have you ever had that experience, where you feel you have died and gone to heaven...(yes I am dramatic,

    but this allows a high degree of creative licence, so, bear with me.....well Ischia has to come close to my own personal eutopia.



    We travelled from Naples on a ferry to Ischia, which took about 40 minutes, this in itself was a pleasure, to feel the wind on my face and to watch Napoli retreat into the distance..


    ..I spent my time reflecting on life....this place is so nice, I didnt want to go home to England, not ONE BIT!



    I kept saying to my friend, I hope you appreciate this, you are lucky, don't ever take it for granted...


    I think you can feel the love a person has for their country when they say...'my Italy'..


    ..funny, I never get all dreamy and say...ahhhhh my England, not very patriotic am I :-).



    Peaceful
    mentally stimulating
    physically relaxing
    invigorating
    and
    soothing
    the type of experience ..defined by you
