Things to see and do on your Gulf of Naples holidays.
Built on the ruins of an Imperial Roman Villa in the 1930s, Giardini Di Augusto in Capri is famous for the beauty of its gardens and views of Isole Faraglioni with its three limestone pinnacles. Another of the islands's attraction is the Blue Grotto, a sea cave so named for its apparently iridescent waters, caused by a trick of the light.
Ischia is one of the oldest spa resorts in the world, with hot springs in abundance. The island has a range of beaches from Chiaia, a great expanse of sand that is good for families due to its clean shallow water, to Maronti, which has a number of caves along the cliffs with hot springs that produce steam for a natural outside sauna. The most unique of these is Le Fumarole where thermal activity makes it possible to cook food by burying it in the sand.
