Ischia boasts an abundance of treasures waiting to be discovered. Its rugged landscapes, manicured gardens and pretty towns, makes for a great daytrip. We'll help you unlock some of the island's secrets on this small group guided tour. Star attractions include Villa Arbusto, a winery and the Aragonese Castle.
We begin with a journey to the island's past at Villa Arbusto in the northwest. Built in the 18th century by the Duke of Altri, it's now an archaeological museum packed with classical Greek artefacts. Then there's the Pietratorcia vineyards, where you'll munch on local specialities and wash them down with its wines.
There's also time to wander around the fishing village of Sant'Angelo, one of the best-preserved on the island. With a few pit stops along the way to take in the scenery, you'll arrive at the medieval Aragonese Castle for a guided tour. Occupying a craggy islet off the east coast, it's reached via a causeway – and is like something out of Game of Thrones.
