Can I take a day trip to Ischia from Sorrento?
Yes, but keep in mind that you will arrive on Ischia at 10:30AM and the return ferry departs at 5PM. You can visit the Aragonese castle and take a drive around the island via taxi, but you won't have time to unwind at one of the island's thermal spas. If you'd like to spend a day at the spa, we recommend planning an overnight.
