The "Garden of Europe" or "Green Island" are just some of the names by which Ischia has become known as a tourist resort in the world of high quality, where nothing is taken for granted, where nature has intended to show the result of the union between water and fire.
Already colonized by the Greeks in the eighth century BC, is the largest of the islands of the Gulf of Naples. Ischia offers a very green and picturesque landscape and despite the building abuses have devoured much of the natural beauty, still manages to offer in every corner of curiosity to discover and appreciate: drowned craters, rocky spikes, lava hills in the beautiful scenery in evolving, as amended by the volcanic activity, where the green dips and is reflected in the deep blue sea. Legend has it that these places were created by the giant Typhon, who was imprisoned by Zeus under Mount EPOMEO: squirming to try to get rid would give life to the places so twisted, while his tears would have generated an area so rich in water. No coincidence that his land is very fertile and agriculture is thriving. From '900 the island's main source of livelihood is tourism related to spas, known since ancient times and is particularly suitable for the treatment of respiratory disorders, muscle and bone.
