10. From Ischia: Private Day Excursion by Boat
Tour the island of Ischia in a private boat and see the best of its dramatic coastline and hidden caves. Pass the Aragonese Castle, an ancient fortress built on a rocky outcrop in the sea, admire the shimmering blue light in the Magician’s cave, and explore Ischia's many picturesque bays. After pickup, depart from the port and follow Ischia’s sparkling coastline to the Aragonese Castle. This majestic fortress, dating back to 474 B.C., sits in the middle of the Bay of Sant’Angelo and is connected to the land by a stone bridge. Pause here to swim in the bay and, optionally, stop at a nearby restaurant to enjoy some fresh fish, at your own expense. Continue to two sea caves, the Magician’s Grotto and Green Cave, that can only be reached from the sea. Swim into both to admire the crystal waters and dancing light inside. Next, reach the bay of San Pancrazio and go ashore to explore the village of Sant’Angelo. Back in the boat, continue to the bay of Sorgeto, with its many hidden coves and grottos. As the sun sets behind you, pass the towns of Forio, Lacco Ameno and Casamicciola Terme on your way back to port.
