For film fans holidays to Ischia will immediately evoke memories of the Anthony Minghella flick, The Talented Mr Ripley. But there's much more to this jewel in the Tyrrhenian Sea than an entry in the annals of movie trivia. Summer holidays to Ischia offer everything from stunning scenery to great beaches, not to mention the opportunity to 'take the waters'. It's also not quite as exclusive as Capri. So, although you're unlikely to find many bargain holidays to Ischia, it's a more affordable option than its jet setting neighbour but just as sexy.
Many of the properties on Ischia are spa hotels and, although they don't offer full blown all inclusive holidays, some feature packages which include spa treatments. For example, the Hotel Il Moresco has a superb spa and fitness centre offering the very latest health and beauty treatments, as well as no less than three spa swimming pools. Alternatively, there's the Mezzatorre Resort & Spa, which has a spa housed in a 16th century watchtower, as well as a tennis court, gym and a sea-facing saltwater swimming pool.
As everywhere in Italy, holidays to Ischia are inextricably linked with great food. What's more, you won't have to pay a fortune to enjoy some good quality local fare. There's a good selection of small, family run establishments serving fresh seafood pasta and pizza -including, of course, the famous 'Neapolitan' variety. And don't forget to round off your meal with a chilled glass of the famous limoncello liqueur, a favourite tipple right along the Amalfi Coast.
