But spas and thermal springs are not the only attraction of the island. Ischia is also famous for its beautiful beaches, that permit to spend long days in the sun and to swim in the beautiful waters of the Mediterranean Sea.

The neighborhood of Ischia Porto is one of the places to visit walking slowly through the narrow streets and the houses of fishermen. On the eastern side of the island there is one of its most popular tourist attractions: the magnificent Aragonese Castle , built by Alfonso of Aragon in the fifteenth century.
