Ischia Island is the largest island in the bay of Naples and considered by many more beautiful than Capri, although less famous. Almost 6 million tourists visit the island every year for the volcanic thermal spas, the beaches and the food.
For breakfast, visit Calise. This restaurant is perfect for a morning coffee and pastry. It’s a little expensive but for just breakfast it shouldn’t be more than $12.
Visit the Castello Aragonese in the morning before it gets too crowded. Rent a boat for less than $10 to travel to the castle in the sea. Inside the castle is a museum with lots of history and exhibits. Adult tickets are $10 each.
Dining at Da Ciccio for lunch is a good choice. They offer tons of seafood options and on this island the seafood is incredible. Lunch is cheaper than dinner and should be less than $20 for one person.
Spend the afternoon relaxing on the beach in Ischia. This beach has breathtaking views of the Mediterranean Sea, perfect for basking in the Italian sun. The beach is called the Maronti Beach and known as one of the best on the island.
Finish off the day at Aenaria Beach Restaurant. Arrive early to get outdoor seating and watch the sunset while eating. It’s highly reviewed as a fantastic restaurant and bar so order drinks to go along with the meal. It’s not expensive and dinner should cost less than $20 a person.
We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
One of Georgia’s greatest cultural gifts might be coming to an end. The Redneck Games, which began in 1996, have seen a dip in attendance in recent years. A lack of sponsors means many of us might never know the joys of “bug zapping by spitball” unless an influx of travelers can help revive the event.
