One of the absolute musts in Ischia is to go to one of the thermal pool parks. Because the area is volcanic, there are many natural hot springs on the island. We went to Negombo, where they have a beautiful beach in addition to the multiple thermal pools. Taking a nap on the beach after soaking in the pools was pure bliss.
At one o' clock, we ate lunch at the restaurant in the park. I remember that fact because we were all hungry by noon, but the restaurant wasn't open yet. (A tell-tale sign we were in Italy.) With huge appetites, we devoured clams and mussels in tomato broth, grilled prawns, linguine with clams, as well as lemon-cream pasta and spaghetti with eggplant. To our surprise, the food was really superb. Everything was cooked perfectly and well seasoned.
