Ischia, Italy

Ischia, Italy

Ischia is a volcanic island in the Tyrrhenian Sea. It lies at the northern end of the Gulf of Naples, about 30 km from the city of Naples. It is the largest of the Phlegrean Islands.
Its origin dates back to In 6 A.D., after his visit to Capri, the emperor Augustus, desperate to obtain the Island, swapped it with Naples for Ischia, which once again fell into Neapolitan hands.
The movie Cleopatra staring Liz Taylor & Richard Burton was filmed here.
