    Ischia – is a volcanic island in the Tyrrhenian Sea. It lies at the northern end of the Gulf of Naples, about 30 km from the city of Naples. It is the largest of the Phlegrean Islands. Roughly trapezoidal in shape, it measures around 10 km east to west and 7 km north to south and has about 34 kilometers (21 mi) of coastline. It is almost entirely mountainous.
    Main feature – thermal spas that cater mostly to European (especially German) and Asian tourists eager to enjoy the fruits of the island’s natural volcanic activity, its thermal hot springs, and its volcanic mud.

    Thermal treatments practiced on Ischia are:
    mud therapybalneotherapy (carried out either individually in baths or collectively in pools), cave therapy andinhalation therapy. Other therapies such as massage or medical gymnastics can also be added to make these therapies more effective and long-lasting.

    Thermal Parks:

    • NEGOMBO in Lacco Ameno is a favorite place for thermal pools. The ten thermal pools are made of concrete and are found in the mountainside, so that they blend in with nature. There is also a beach so you can swim in the sea, too. Negombo is a thermal pool park, and you don’t need a reservation. You can just show up, pay the fee and enter. If you want massages or some other personal treatment though, you should call ahead and make a reservation.
    • POSEIDON is the most famous and largest of the thermal parks. It is lovely, set next to the sea where you can swim, and has about 20 pools of different temperatures, some with waterfall or hydro massage. The thermal pools here are typical pools fed by natural hot springs. There are gardens, restaurants, and a bar. Poseidon Gardens is on the Bay of Citara, on Ischia’s west side.
    • CAVA SCURA, in Sant’ Angelo, is probably considered the best healing treatment spa and their thermal pools are thought to be the oldest.
    • Aphrodite thermal park in Maronti (near Sant’ Angelo) has a great reputation. Aphrodite has eight thermal pools and a beach. Classic treatments, such as mud baths and massage, are available.
    • CASTIGLIONE is a more economical choice for thermal pools, making it popular with kids and families, so it can be crowded and less relaxing. If you’re traveling with kids, Castiglione would be a good choice. The thermal springs here have been known since Roman times. In addition to the nine thermal pools, there are an Olympic-sized pool with sea water and two covered pools.
    • NITRODI in Buonopane (in the comune di Barano) has healing showers and the water is best known for helping with skin ailments.
