Forio

The busiest resort town on Ischia, Forio is located on the western shore of the island, under the slopes of Monte Epomeo. The neighbouring countryside is green and fertile, well-known for its wine production. Forio has been a popular destination since the 1950s, when it was a port of call for the international jet-set. Nowadays it attracts a wide range of visitors who appreciate the atmosphere, the beaches and the spas.

One of Forio's prime attractions is the beautiful beach of Citara, alongside one of the island's largest spa complexes, the Giardini di Poseidon.

Forio's historical centre is better-preserved than other Ischian towns, and there are pleasant streets for wandering where you can see traces of the medieval and Baroque eras. Interesting buildings include the Torrione, a fifteenth century tower with panoramic views, and the little white church of Santuario della Madonna del Sorccorso, which is perched above the sea.
