Ischia on TV - 2013

Can't promise that it will play for those based outside of Italy, but Ischia was on the telly last Saturday, in this half an hour episode of the "Sereno Variabile" series:

rai.tv/dl/RaiTV/programmi/media/ContentItem-…

Mostly Ischia Ponte in the first half... underwater archaeology in the Bay of Cartoromana (between Ponte and the Castello Aragonese islet); an interview with a famous islander who used to run a London restaurant, popular with celebs such as Diana, Peter Sellers etc; then elsewhere, including potato harvesting in the interior, the chef at the renowned 2 Michelin star "Il Mosaico" in Casamicciola, pre- and early-Christian discoveries under the main church in Lacco Ameno, and lots more...

Just needs an English voiceover to be a great advert for the island?

Hi Peter

Great stuff. The link played okay for me. Fantastic scenery and I recognised most of the places but I couldn't figure out which hotel the pool was near the beginning. It was really close to the beach and looked good. First thing I'm going to do is have a cold beer right next to the sea in Bruno's or Al Pontile, probably both!

Hi there!

We walked down to Bruno's just this last Sunday - and did indeed start with a cold beer... and then a jug of his very pleasant rosé!

Thanks for good news that the programme worked... at the very start, the presenter is at Negombo. There's then a brief view up to Mount Epomeo and a sweeping pan down to a lovely hotel pool, set quite high above the landscape. I reckon that must be somewhere above and inland from Sant'Angelo..... quite near Panza would be my guess, although I don't recognise it individually?

Then Negombo again, and Poseidon - with the swirly rocks - and more Negombo. At about 2 minutes in, I think that's perhaps the Hotel Parco Smeraldo Terme - at Maronti:

... or shots from several different places... followed by talking to some Roman visitors around what looks to be the main pool at Negombo.... but with lots of cutting from one to another!

Regards,

Peter

Great link. Just what I need after a hard day a work to get me in the mood for my annual trip to Ischia next week. It even looks as if the weather has improved in time for my visit. Can't wait to be back on my favourite island.

Hi there Peter,

I hope you are well.

Thank you for sharing this link. It could not have come at a more opportune time as I will be returning to Ischia for a brief holiday at the end of August. I can hardly wait!

Hello from Vancouver

One day in Naples (September 18 - HAL Noordam); please advise if Ischia "is doable"? The ship is scheduled to dock at 08:00 and departs 16:00. Any information much appreciated. Thanks.

Whilst not impossible, we don't often encounter people making the trip!

By hydrofoil - from the Molo Beverello, adjacent to where most cruise ships moor - it's all but an hour each way, with this line offering the most frequent service:

... which wouldn't leave you very long actually here?

You'll find a little more detail in....

Jeff - hi there... glad to read you're answering the siren's call, and coming back!

We're both fine thanks, with the season now well under-way - after a dodgy start, courtesy of a spell of nasty weather that hit much of western Europe.

At the risk of your blushes, I trust you won't mind me including a link to the write-up of your earlier visit - for anyone whose interest has been sparked by watching that video....

tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTopic-g580214-i10609-k…

One innovation since you were here, the island's visitor magazine is now (mostly!) bilingual - with the current edition and backnumbers available as PDFs from....

ischianews.com/it/…2.html

Hope that will help with your planning!

Peter
