Ischia is a town and comune on Ischia island. Administratively it is part of the province of Naples, in the southern Italian region Campania. It is famed for its thermal baths due to the volcanic nature of the island.


Main article: Ischia

The main centre of the comune is divided between Ischia Porto and Ischia Ponte: the latter takes its name from the former wooden bridge which, until the 18th century, connected it to the Aragonese Castle.
