    Pass By: Ischia Porto, Ischia Porto, Ischia, Isola d'Ischia, Province of Naples, Campania

    Upon meeting your guide at the main port of Sorrento, Marina Piccola, you'll board a shared ferry to cross the waters over to Ischia Island. You'll meet your private car upon arrival, and you'll drive to the first stop of the tour, where you'll enjoy a good coffee and and “Sfugliatella” - cream-filled local pastry resembling stacked leaves.

    Pass By: Castello Aragonese, 80077, Ischia, Isola d'Ischia Italy

    You'll meet your private car upon arrival, and you'll drive to the first stop of the tour, where you'll enjoy a good coffee and and “Sfugliatella” - cream-filled local pastry resembling stacked leaves.

    Afterwards, you'll head to Ischia Ponte to see the ancient village of Celsa, famous for the Aragonese Castle of Ischia: mysteriously standing out of the sea, detached from the rest of the island. Here, you'll stop at a traditional fruit and vegetable booth to taste some seasonal fruits. You'll also stop at the oldest bakery in Ischia.

    Pass By: La Spiaggia e la Baia di Cartaromana, Ischia, Isola d'Ischia Italy

    Pass By: Sant'Angelo (Serrara Fontana), Isola d'Ischia Italy

    Then you'll head to Sant’Angelo. On the way, you'll be able to observe “Fumarole”: a phenomenon resulting from the volcanic activity. Out from the ground, a great thermal energy emanates and produces clouds of vapor in the external atmosphere and bubbles of gas of around 212-degrees F/100-degrees C. Since the times of Romans, the warm sand was used to cure body pains through sand-baths. During the centuries these thermal waters have had many uses, including using the heat for culinary purposes.

    At the end of the tour, your driver will take you back to the port, and your guide will assist you with your ferry return to Sorrento.

    We took a private tour with a native guide, Guiseppe. He is a scholar and very passionate about the history of this beautiful island. He tailored our tour to our desires and we toured the Arragon Castle, followed by lunch his favorite island hangout (you will have to ask him).
