La Baia di Sorgeto

The Bay of Sorgeto d’Ischia (234 comfortable steps to reach it) is famous for its thermal pools by the sea.
In Sorgeto, a stream of hot thermal water descends from the mountain and, mitigating itself with the cold water of the sea, forms various natural hot pools enclosed by stones, where you can bathe even in winter.
The Bay of Sorgeto is a paradise nestled in one of the most evocative corners of the island of Ischia in the municipality of Forio, in Panza, on the edge of the beautiful village of Sant’Angelo.
Once you have reached the incredible destination, you immediately understand that you have arrived in a fantastic world, out of reality: intense fumes, hot vapors that come out of the rocks and the sea, the pungent scent of thermal water mixed with the smell of the sea they come to meet you and run you down the stairs.

Giardini La Mortella

The La Mortella Gardens were created starting in 1958 by Lady Susana Walton, the Argentine-born wife of the English composer Sir William Walton. The gardens are located on the promontory of Zaro in the municipality of Forio, on the island of Ischia.
The Waltons arrived in Ischia shortly after their marriage, in 1949. At first they settled in a rented house, but then decided to buy land, in the locality called Le Mortelle – named after myrtle bushes (Myrtus communis) that grew among the rocks. Thus the property was called La Mortella. Lady Walton has been developing the garden for more than 50 years, initially with the help and advice of English landscape architect Russell Page, then exclusively following her own inspiration.
