Ischia: The Island of True Relaxation


Ischia is perhaps not as well-known as nearby Capri, but it is a fantastic day-trip from Sorrento. Ischia is known as the Green Isle because of its lush vegetation. It is also the only place in the area with real sandy beaches. It is a volcanic island dominated by Mount Epomeo. Our tour takes you from the port of Sorrento over to Ischia by hydrofoil - a one-hour journey across the Bay of Naples. On arrival you will be given a guided tour by coach around the whole island, stopping at all key places of interest. The afternoon is yours for shopping or relaxing on beach before cruising back to Sorrento and the Hotel Aminta.

The Green Cruise


Come and discover the islands of Ischia and Procida on your Green Isle Cruise. Enjoy swimming and sunbathing in a relaxed, peaceful atmosphere. Admire the breathtaking views that the island of Ischia - renowned throughout Europe for its thermal baths and rich fertility - has to offer. While cruising around the Isle of Ischia you'll be awed by the unique rock formation at the port of Lacco Ameno, know to the locals as the Fungo (which means "mushroom".) At St. Angelo in Ischia you will be offered the chance to take a small boat to the shore for a wander around the shops. The cost of the boat is optional and should be paid on board. If you prefer not go ashore, then just remain on board the Marine Club and soak up the sunshine. Then as a complete contrast you will visit the lazy, relaxed island of Procida - primarily a fishing village but more famous for a former prison which used to house prisoners serving life sentences! Lunch can be bought on board payable directly to the crew or you can bring your own picnic lunch. This cruise offers a very relaxing day in which to work on your tan as you take in the sights.
