It is divided into six administrative units: Ischia, which is the main centre, the charming town of Casamicciola, Lacco Amenofamosa Resort with numerous thermal springs, the characteristic seaside village of Forio, Serrata Fontana, the starting point of Excursions to Mount Epomeo and Barano D'ischia, on the hills that descend towards the wide beach of billows. Apart from the beauty of the landscape and its bathing establishments, what is worth to know are its spas, famous for the quality of its waters. The thermal richness of the island is immense: 29 basins, hundreds of mineral springs and fumaroles. In the beautiful Villa shrub is the archaeological Museum of Pithecusae, with many precious finds. Ischia was the first Greek settlement in the Tyrrhenian Sea, it was founded in the 8th century B.C., under the name Pithekousa. Some of the museum's most important exhibits date back to those times, such as the famous Nestor Cup. The port of Ischia is a volcanic crater formed in the 4th century B.C., surrounded by green hills.
