An hour from Naples by boat, Ischia is the largest island in the bay and one with the greatest variety of landscapes. Its slopes are covered with vines and forests, and the island has several thermal sources. Go to Casamicciola Terme to see the sources and enjoy the beach. You can also climb Mount Epomeo, from Barano, or discover the sweet seaside village of Maronti.
