IschiaCapriProcida and Vivara are the island in the bay of Naples. To the north of the gulf are situated Ischia, Procida and Vivara, looking toward the “Flegrea”coast (and “Flegree” is their name) while in the south of the gulf, opposite to the Sorrento peninsula, lays Capri.

The “flegree” islands are different from Capri both for their position and for their different geological origins.

Ischia, the ‘green’ island

The most beautiful and biggest island in the Gulf of Naples, Ischia is one of the most famous seaside and tourist spa centers of Italy and the world.
The ancients called it PITECUSAE-AENARIA-INARIME-ARIME-ISCLA.

Today, the island of Ischia is a well-known tourist center for four main reasons. Firstly, for its unequalled natural beauty, secondly, for its all-year-round mild climate, thirdly for its thermal water, and lastly for its modern tourist facilities and hotels.
