History and nature, these are the traits that make the Island of Ischia unique. A lush and untamed mediterranean vegetation reveals itself in all of its charm in the many parks and gardens, and the traces of the history of Pithecusae, the first colony of ancient Greece, that revoke an anciet yet mysterious and mythical time.
