Ischia in one day: Morning

Of course, the first thing that comes to mind on a visit to Ischia is a tour of the island, we therefore advise you first of all as soon as you land, perhaps taking advantage of a beautiful sunny day, to take a tour of the island by sea in order to discover the best places hidden in each inlet.
