For the second day of our stay in Ischia, we recommend a visit to one of the many thermal parks on the island. Among all of them, we have chosen Negombo Spa: here you can enjoy 14 pools, (some marine, thermal and therapeutical), a thermal area with Turkish bath, outdoor pool and modern aestetical-healthy treatments. Furthermore, you can eat in one of the restaurants of the structure, do shopping, or admire from the beautiful panoramic gardens the Mediterranean sea with all its glimmering colors. The Park is open from June 19 to October 11.
After your natural spa session, you may want to take a glance at the historical and artistic gems of the island. In this case, “The Church of Soccorso” could be a perfect choice. Located on a promontory overlooking the sea, this ancient convent has byzantine architecture style, Moorish and Mediterranean architecture in a fascinating fusion of different but harmonious shapes. The church’s interior is small but interesting with beautiful arches and vaulted ceilings. When you get there, be sure to have with you your camera: at dusk, the white stucco of the building becomes gradually red by the sunset reflected on the ocean. This breathtaking scene surely deserves a pic.
For your last dinner on the island, we suggest you reach Lacco Ameno, where you’ll find “Indaco”. Opened in 2009 within the hotel “Regina Isabella”, this restaurant has won several accolades, and since 2013 has been awarded a Michelin Star. Overlooking a small bay, this magic place allows guests to sit either in the dining-room or outside on the wide jetty. As for the cuisine, it is predominantly seafood: the dishes prepared by the chef Pasquale Calamaro includes the freshest farm-to-table products of the island as well as the hotel’s private garden.
