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.

Salerno Guide

The Italian city of Salerno lies on the Gulf of Salerno, in the Salerno region of Italy. The city lies on the shores of the Tyrrhenian Sea and is close to the Amalfi Coast and is perhaps best known for being the home of the world's first medical school, the Schola Medica Salernitana. Being the cultural hub of the region, Salerno has many things for visitors to see and do. The city has some lovely pedestrian streets and large piazzas and for visitors who have a car they can easily drive around the city as traffic is not a problem and parking is available in most areas.

Salerno is located at the geographical centre of a triangle nicknamed Tourist Triangle of the 3 P (namely a triangle with the corners in Pompeii, Paestum and Positano). This provides Salerno with a unique opportunity to attract tourists who visit the city to take in sights that include the Lungomare Trieste, the Castello di Arechi, the Duomo and the Museo Didattico della Scuola Medica Salernitana.
