Campania>artecard Ischia

Today the Artecard website is showing a new version of the card, aimed at those who visiting Ischia from May 1st onwards....

www.campaniartecard.it/eventi.cfm?id=38

It lasts for 5 days, and seems a little expensive at €28, however the Italian version of the announcment also mentions transport - and 5 days' use of the buses here would otherwise cost some 15 Euro.

So perhaps, on top of La Mortella at €12, the Pithecusae museum at the Villa Arbusto at €5, Viscont's 'La Colombia' and the Torre Guevera, that's about right?

More details eventually, no doubt!

For photos of most of those sites, and other places around the island, start here...

My pleasure - it's gratifying to know they're of interest!

Having read that you'll be here on Good Friday, I wonder if you've plans for that day? If not, then perhaps you might enjoy the procession that our neighbouring island of Procida puts on that morning...

As well as the ferry - whose dawn departure is a bit early - one or more of the tour companies usually organise a boat trip, although they rarely put out much publicity...

Otherwise, that same evening, over in the town of Forio, on the west of the island, there's their "Actus Tragicus" - a re-enactment in period costume of the Via Crucis. Haven't been to that, but as ever someone on Youtube has....

Bit early yet for details, but give me a nudge nearer the time if you want to know more...

Hi, Is this purely for use on Ischia? Not for Sorrento / Pompeii / Naples too? Suppose that would be too much of a good thing!

There is already a 3 day all around Campania card that would include Naples and other sites nearby. I guess this one is for folks staying on Ischia for 5 days and not going to the other places.

From all I've read, it's for Ischia only - but no one has seen one yet...

Checking that page again, it appears the launch date has been pushed back to May 10th, so - guesses aside - we'll have to wait a bit longer to be absolutely sure....

Just a bump for this, and to say that - as far as I've seen - the scheme is set to run only until 31st October....

.... but I'm open to correction on that!
