It is obvious from the moment that you enter the gardens that their creation and development has been a labour of love.
The first things you see are the various fountains which straightaway give you a certain sense of tranquility and then you are lead into the many differing types of planting and decoration.
The informality of the gardens belies their beauty which is enhanced by the views of the seascape below.
We were also fortunate to be able to attend the evening concert which, by coincidence, was performed by Chetham's School of Music from our home town of Manchester. Biased I may be but it was a wonderful finale to an unforgettable day !

Visited the gardens with my wife and parents and it was definitely worth the trip. It is obvious that a lot of time and work went into making this attraction. Very well maintained and has beautiful view of the town and sea. Would highly recommend on any vacation to ischia.

La Mortella is a fascinating garden with tropical and exotic plants, waterfalls and fountains and most importantly it transfers the enthusisam and love of the owners in putting it together over the years! Probably the best resort to visit in Ischia. Take time to visit the garde, watch the video in the musuem and have a snack at the bar to make the experience memorable.
