The Hotel San Marco is an oasis of peace in the municipality of Forio d'Ischia. The hotel is situated on a small promontory from which it is possible to admire the many characteristics of the surrounding landscape: a few steps away from the hotel there are the beaches of Citara and Cava dell'Isola, while behind it there are the green hills of Forio. The rooms are nicely furnished with light colors inspired by the wonderful suggestive sunsets, perfect for a romantic holiday. There are four thermal-water pools: two are outdoors and have different temperatures to satisfy every guest, surrounded by palm trees, bougainvillae and maritime pines that create a quiet environment; the other two pools are indoors. The guests of the Hotel San Marco can use the thermal centre of the Hotel Royal Palm, which offers modern and efficient treatments thanks to the healing properties of its thermal water. The thermal department has a highly-qualified staff and is associated with the national health service. There is a wellness area with sauna, turkish bath, multi-sensory showers, iced waterfall and relax area in the Royal Palm (surcharge).
Forio d'Ischia is the island's second municipality for population and importance. It is located between two promontories: Punta Caruso and Punta Imperatore, and offers the most beautiful beaches of Ischia in an enchanting landscape that combines the coasts and the vines that adorn the western side of the Mount Epomeo. Forio extends for 13 square km and, thanks to its rocky recesses, it is possible to bathe not only on its sandy beaches, but also in unique places such as the coast of Zaro and the Sorgeto bay, famous for its thermal springs flowing directly from the bottom of the sea at high temperatures (bathing is also possible during the winter). Forio is the municipality that best preserved its historical centre full of alleys, churches and sighting towers that make it the cultural centre of the island. During the '50s it was the favourite destination of many celebrities such as Luchino Visconti, Pierpaolo Pasolini, Sir William Walton, Eduardo de Filippo and artists such as Elsa Morante, Alberto Moravia, Auden, Pablo Neruda and many others.
