Ischia Guide

The Italian island of Ischia lies in the Tyrrhenian Sea, at the northern end of the Gulf of Naples, roughly 30 km away. Ischia is the largest of the Phlegrean Islands and measures approximately 10 km east to west and 7 km north to south. The island's terrain is characterised by mountains which almost completely cover the island, with the highest peak is at 788 meters above sea level.

The island's thermal spas are a major attraction for the island with many tourists visiting from Europe and Asia. The hot springs and volcanic mud are caused by volcanic activity on the island. However, there is more to Ischia than the thermal spas. Worth a visit is the Castello Aragonese which was built on a rock close to the island in 474 BC and is probably the most visited attraction on the island. It is accessed via a tunnel long which there is a small chapel consecrated by Saint John Joseph of the Cross.

From the port on Ischia ferries depart to Naples, Pozzuoli and Procida.

Amalfi Guide

The Italian town of Amalfi is the largest town located along the Amalfi Coast which is in the Province of Solerno. The town lies on the shores of the Gulf of Solerno and at the base of Monte Cerreto. Along with many other towns along the Amalfi Coast such as Ravello and Positano, Amalfi has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The town's written history dates back to the 6th century AD and soon after became an important maritime power by trading grain from its neighbours, slaves from the interior, salt from Sardinia and timber, in exchange for gold dinars minted in Egypt and Syria. This trade was carried out in order to purchase Byzantine silks that it then sold on to the West.

The town is used to looking after its visitors with several former monasteries having being converted into hotels. The Luna Convento was converted in the beginning of the 19th century and the Cappuccini Convento was converted in the 1880's. Celebrated visitors to Amalfi included the composer Richard Wagner and the playwright Henrik Ibsen, who both completed works whilst staying in Amalfi.
