on the last leg of my journey to Italy I met up with my husband and we travelled to the Island of Ischia (not a common destination for US citizens). This island is an amazing and beautiful lush green place with breathtaking views of the mediterranean and a wonderful B&B called Villa Lieta. Our host Anna could not have been more helpful. Her knowledge of the Island and quick thinking to arrange our daily adventures made this trip such a pleasure! Her inn is literally within eye shot of the Aragonese Castle, circa BC which is an amazing site to visit. Delicious Breakfasts are served up on the terrace overlooking the water and you could not ask for a better vista. Our room was not water view; however it was a lovely large space with a shutter window overlooking the quaint street below. At night it was a beautiful scene of outdoor dining and activity. I would recommend my US friends to stay in Ischia and save Capri for a day trip destination. You will save money and get an incredibly authentic Italian Island experience!
