Like "Ischia", quite a few of the town and village names here are pronounced oddly, or with the stress in unexpected places.

Try this to hear several of them - and for some nice footage from around the island as well...

Just remember Chianti so each time you see chi in a word you will know how to pronounce it.

Great word associated with Chianti . . . hope to be drinking lots and other types in Ischia and the rest of Italy. 7 weeks till we fly off to Rome!

You can also think of bruschetta (broosketta) - and schizophrenia!

Unfortunately, in Sydney restaurants "bruschetta" is always pronounced as if it were an English word - soft "sch".
