Ischia: the emerald island
The biggest island in the gulf of Naples is an emerald for its lush vegetation that starts from the top of the mountain “Epomeo” and arrives to the sea.
This patch of land well represents the four basic elements: fire, land, water, and air. The island, we can say, is on fire, because has volcanic origin and its underground is still made of boiling lava.
This land is perfect for cultivating vines thanks to the volcanic constitution of the soil and its climate. Water is present under and around the island. Its boiling bowels warm freshwater forming fantastic thermal springs and you can find them in the thermal parks set on the island.
All around the island there is a beautiful sea with a variety of Mediterranean fishes and a marvellous seabed. Air is pure thanks to the winds and is perfumed by the flowers at the springtime and by the sea.
There you can find, history, art, wellness, traditions, and local food. From these words you can’t miss to visit the island and its treasuries.
