What to see in Ischia

There are so many things to see in Ischia and different parts of it will appeal to different people. For many, it's the island's beaches as it has more than 20 beautiful beaches, but beyond the beaches, there are many other attractions below we will mention the most known ones:

  • Castello Aragonese

Is a medieval castle located in Ischia Ponte and is perhaps the most iconic and intriguing of all Ischia's sights. It dates back nearly 2,500 years when the original fortress was built by Hiero I, a tyrant from the Sicilian region of Syracusa. Castello Aragonese offers a fascinating glimpse into the history of the island as well as providing a beautiful addition to the landscape.

  • Giardini la Mortella

La Mortella (The Myrtle), is the former home of English composer Sir William Walton and his Argentinian wife, Lady Susana Walton. Shortly after World War Two, the couple moved to Ischia and eventually made their home on what is now the site of The Sir William Walton Foundation and La Mortella Gardens.

In 1956, after having spent the previous 6 years divided between 6 month stints in London and Ischia, the couple decided to buy their new property at La Mortella. Having understood the potential of the site, they decided to call in landscape expert, Russell Page, who set about transforming the stone quarry on a volcanic hill, into a tropical garden paradise with an extraordinary and fascinating array of rare and exotic plant life.
