Forio or ischia Porto/ponte

Can anyone advise me as a first time visitor to Ischia ,which is the nicer place to stay when we first arrive.- We don't know how to choose between IschiaPOrto/Ponte or Forio.

We would like somewhere lively and pretty with nice cafes.

My husband has the idea that Foreio would be less touiristy? We are going this October and would like to stay in a lovely hotel with a pool. Again any advice would be most welcome.

We are in our fifties.

For our own vacations here we always used to choose Ischia Ponte - and that's where we moved to back in 2003....

Although I think of Forio as being more touristy, in fact that Comune and the city of Ischia have about the same number of hotel beds in all!

The western coast benefits from longer afternoons, with the sun setting into the sea there - but we much prefer the evening "nightlife" in Ponte.

Start here for several thousand photos from around the island....


... with these all taken in various Octobers:
