Parco Termale Negombo – Ischia

Our last day in Italy was the most relaxing, by far. It was definitely a nice way to end my two week stay, and I’m sure my Aunt and Cousin enjoyed themselves.

Negombo is a thermal park on the island of Ischia. It gives the illusion of being secluded – it’s surrounded on three sides by steep cliffs and hillsides, and the fourth side opens up into a rock-walled bay. It’s very beautiful.

In reality, it’s only a 5 minute taxi ride from Casamicciola (the second port on Ischia), and is essentially in the middle of a neighborhood and bustling tourist district. The entry fee (29 Euro) probably helps to keep out the riff raff. Ischia is made up of several pools (close to 20, I believe), all of different temperatures – and it’s natural thermal water. Most of it is salty. It was always one of my favorite destinations in high school – my friends and I visited frequently.

We got up bright and early, took a ferry from the port of Pozzuoli, and arrived at Negombo right around 9:00 AM. We stayed until around 4:00 PM. If you’re ever in southern Italy, this is somewhere you have to see!
