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.
Procida is an Italian island that lies in the Bay of Naples in the south of the country. The island is situated between the Italian mainland and the larger island of Ischia and has a more authentic and charming feel that the more popular islands of Capri and Ischia. The island's main settlement, Procida Porto, is located on the island's north eastern shore and is where ferries to the island dock and where buses depart to travel around the island's road network. The oldest parts of Procida Porto was built on a high headland in order to provide some form of defence from invaders. Residential dwellings can be found all over the island, but at the southern end of Procida Porto is another more concentrated settlement, called Chiaiolella. A small curving islet, called Vivara, lies alongside Procida and is now a nature reserve. The rest of the island is somewhat built up and has a fairly large amount of land devoted to agriculture.
Ferries to Ischia generally stop at Procida. There are both fast and slow services, and some run from a different port in Naples, called Mergellina, which is handy for the Italian railway network. Procida is also served by ferries from a nearby town on the mainland called Pozzuoli.
