Forio d'Ischia: the most beloved destination of 1960’s jet setters

If, during a trip through the Golden Island, your ear were to catch words of an unusual sound, you might conclude that you have arrived in Forio d’Ischia, which – in its local dialect – still preserved influences of ancient civilisations. Between the promontories of Punta Imperatore and Punta Caruso and some of the most beautiful and famous beaches of this land detached from the continent, Forio has over time been able to attract important cultural figures and jet setters, from Pasolini to Jacqueline Kennedy and Aristotle Onassis, who were fascinated by the perfectly preserved old town and the amazing sea, caressed by long recesses and protrusions but also by small isolated coves.
