It's important to choose the right location to book your hotel on Ischia! The island is large and each town has its pros and cons.

The first factor you should consider is your travel style and itinerary. If you are planning on going out at night and are looking for a lively atmosphere, we suggest the town of Ischia Porto or Forio. If you are looking forward to settling in and relaxing during your stay, opt for Sant'Angelo or Lacco Ameno.

Some helpful tips about which town to choose:
