Do not miss visiting this fabulous garden!!! Oh my goodness..even if you are not a plant person, this garden will excite you! It is packed full of the most amazing collection of beautiful plants, little intriguing pathways, Fountains, interesting fun sculptural pieces and all on a hillside, so plenty of steps and twisty turny pathways and every step demands you look at another amazing leaf shape, or colourful flower or shadow cast by overlapping shapes....a photographers paradise!! And then, there is a tea room, offering Fortnum and Mason tea!!! At very reasonable prices!! Do go into the music room..we were treated to a practice recital, piano and violin and it was a few moments of reflective calm! Such an amazing garden....wonderful!

Parco Termale Castiglione

Reviewed By evelynjd - new jersey

Traveled late Sept 2015, perfect weather 80s, walked from hotel to bus terminal by the port, bus crowded with rowdy students, you must know exactly where to get off so ask ask ask, 1 euro one way, a bit disappointed too big and a lot of going up/down you have to really watch your steps, was not that hot thermal water, was not relaxed. Went for one afternoon and did not return. Booked a little costly hotel because of access to Castiglione for free. Stayed 3 nights at a hotel who had a better spa/thermal place inside the hotel.

Negombo Giardini Termali

Reviewed By MG31England - Essex, United Kingdom

Our first visit to Thermal Baths - absolutely loved it, the setting is beautiful, the facilities (restaurants, cafes, toilets, changing rooms, lockers etc) are good and the pools excellent in both quality and variety. It was easy to hire (or buy) a towel. I would take some flip flops or similar shoes with me next time.

Castello Aragonese

Reviewed By Sonia T

We enjoyed the history, conservation and restoration of this monument. The views were fantastic.

A freshly squeezed orange juice was made that was much appreciated.
Gift shop was stocked with lovely items made by local craftsmen.
Torture chamber items were shocking and a reminder of our not too distant brutal past.
Profits are used to fund ongoing restorations.

Baia di Sorgeto

Reviewed By Michael G

Thought I'd better cover a few points not really mentioned.
We got off at St Angelo and made our way down to get the water taxi,except the guy wouldn't take us as it has dangerous rock he said..We presumed we'd maybe hit it at low tide?!So,possibly check that if you're relying on the water taxi.My advice would be to get off in Panza,the village before St Angelo.The Springs are well sign posted from the main road,so you shouldn't get lost.It's a long walk down there,and of course,you have to come back up!
Bus tickets you buy from a bar or a shop BEFORE you get on the bus.We asked about buses from the tourist info when we got off the ferry,but they neglected to mention this!
A local,who mostly all seemed to be very friendly and helpful,pointed this out to us.You stamp the ticket in a machine when you get on the bus,but we only saw a few people do it,and the driver wasn't bothered about checking.
I was a bit non plussed on the Springs.As has been mentioned in some of the reviews,getting room in the pools can be quite difficult,and some of them are too hot to get into.The rocks are slippy and it was quite nice when we did get in one,but I didn't think it was worth the overall cost and effort to get there!

Cava Grado Beach

Reviewed By tfizzle - Portland, Oregon

We went to this beach by walking up from Sant Angelo and their Beaches. Less expensive to rent a chair and umbrella. A couple of vendors selling food and massages on the beach. Beware of jellyfish (medusa) as they sting. This can be a little bit of a hike though but a family can make it.

Chiesa del Soccorso

Reviewed By skeggybaby - Northampton

This little church is so modest compared to the magnificent churches we visited on Ischia and nearby. But it's lovely, so quiet and peaceful. As for the setting, it's just unique. If you are lucky you will see it dressed in white flowers for a wealthy wedding. It featured in the film Avanti one of my favourites so it had a special meaning.

Baia di San Montano

Reviewed By vantashtik - Crowborough, United Kingdom

This used to be private beach with a very small 'public' area but now has been divided into three sections.The far right is now Negombo, middle section has now been concessione doff to hotels and the far left sectionis 'public' (free) Was only seen with a handful of umbrellas but now coveerd like so many on the Mainland. Also the hotel concession area has inferior sunbeds that do not have a head shade or multiple positioning backs like the ones next door in Negombo. The pric efor two beds and umbrella is still good valu and half the price of Beaches in Liguria. There is also a new 'public' area snack bar area under sails which sevrves the worse cup of coffee I have ever tasted in Italy. It is a fantastic beach, beautiful sand, very shallow walk out to sea (200yds plus and still only chest deep). No stones/rocks/weeds underfoot-beautifully clean and clear.

Nitrodi Hot Springs

The Park of the Spring of Nitrodi offers a hydro-aromatherapy trail which thanks to the direct contact with aromatic and officinal plants boosts the effects of the water. After having drunk the water and taken a shower, visitors can go for a walk in the Park and stop in the specially organised hydro-aromatherapy areas.

The most amazing place ever! It was totally relaxing, and I physically felt the effects of the healing waters. I highly recommend! I also highly recommend the Cantina restaurant at the entrance of the Fonte delle Ninfe. The small family owned restaurant has some of the best food I had during my entire stay in Italy!
