The Hotel Terme Zi' Carmela is the perfect combination of land and sea. It is a three-star complex situated in the municipality of Forio d'Ischia, a few steps away from the wonderful seafront that links the harbour to the beach of La Chiaia. In less than a minute, its guests can reach the pedestrian area in the historical centre of the municipality full of typical local shops. Some of the rooms have a sea view, while others have a view on the Mount Epomeo. The main entrance overlooks the harbour, while a private path leads to the historical centre full of picturesque alleys. The restaurant on the panoramic terrace allows the guests to enjoy a peaceful dinner before having fun in the underlying night club "Lucignolo". The hotel has an efficient beauty centre with thermal water and beauty packages, massages, detox programs and mud therapies, ideal for rheumatisms and arthritis.
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.
