There are so many amazing places in Italy to visit, it is difficult to find the best memories. 

This lead photo was taken on the Island of Ischia. My wife Angela suggested we visit the island which is off the coast of Napoli. It turned out to be an amazing experience, Hot mineral springs filled a swimming pool.

The green color of the water is from the high mineral content.

Some great restaurants are all around the island.

This was a great light lunch of antipasti. 

 

We took the bus to the small village of Sant’Angelo on the tiger side of the island for dinner.

It is well worth the quick trip from  Napoli to Ischia. Take the ferry it is a good day trip of a long weekend stay.  You can also visit the island of Procida. This is where “The Talented Mr. Ripley” and “Il Postino” were filmed.
