During your stay in Naples, treat yourself to a day of relaxation and discovery, joining the boat tour to Ischia and Procida departing from Naples. On board of a comfortable and elegant boat, together with an expert skipper, you will visit Ischia, the so-called “Green Island”, famous for its green landscapes and the healing properties of its springs and thermal waters; and Procida, the smallest of the islands of the Gulf of Naples, with its slow rhythms, far from the unbridled tourism and chaos of the nearby islands. The tour includes stops for swimming and snorkeling, snacks and cold drinks offered on board and stops at the ports to explore the characteristic towns on foot.
