Speedam 2014 Venue: ISCHIA


Ischia island is located in the bay of Naples and is close to Capri, Sorrento, Pompeii and Amalfi, with which it shares their legendary beauty. Thanks to its volcanic origins, Ischia is very famous for its hydrothermal heritage which is one of the richest in the world. Heated by volcanic action and popular since Greek and Roman times, the water of the natural hot springs is good for a variety of health treatments. In addition to thermal parks Ischia is very rich in plants and gardens, so that it is well known as the “Green Island”. Lovely beaches, fishing villages and friendly people contribute to the charm of this Southern Italian island, together with the delicious fragrance drifting from the numerous lemon groves in the surrounding area. The visitors can relax on the superb sandy beaches or explore the boutiques before sitting and enjoying a drink in one of the chic bars or cafés. From Ischia Porto, you just need to walk along the beach to find yourself in the smaller, quieter Ischia Ponte. Aside from the chalk white houses contrasting with the jagged cliffs, dark green vegetation and vivid blue sea, visitors can also tour.
