Enjoy a wonderful day exploring the amazing Island of Ischia and its marvelous gardens.
Dominated by Mount Epomeo, Ischia is a beautiful island that neighbours Capri known as the green isle much bigger than Capri. You will see all the highlights as you go on a nice coach tour around the island before reaching the subtropical “La Mortella” gardens, created by English composer Sir William Walton and his wife who lived here from 1949.
They feature more than 300 rare and exotic plants, along with ornate statues and waterfalls. La Mortella is divided into two parts: a lower garden, called “The Valley”, and an upper garden on The Hill, terraced with retaining walls.
The many areas of the garden are linked by a network of walks, paths, ramps and steps that climb the dry walls allowing the visitors to reach the upper hill, where they can enjoy breathtaking views of the Bay of Forio.
After the visit you will have free time for lunch, catching then the hydrofoil to Sorrento at 5.00 p.m .
Guide will meet you at the port of Sorrento “Bar La Scogliera”.
