Lacco Ameno

Located by the sea with its characteristic "Fungo", between beauty and flavours

Lacco Ameno is one of the six municipalities of the island of Ischia, in the Gulf of Naples. It is located in the northwestern area of the island and extends from the base of Mount Epomeo to the sea. It borders with  Forio d'Ischia (west) and Casamicciola Terme (east), to which it is connected by a beautiful seafront pervaded by the sea breeze.

It was founded in the eighth century B.C. by greek sailors that landed on the island and settled down in the Monte Vico area: the city of Pithecusae, the first colony of "Magna Grecia", was born. Many historical evidences that testify the ancient past of this place are preserved in the Santa Restituta Museum and in the Villa Arbusto Museum: here it is also possible to admire the famous and extremely important "Coppa di Nestore", Nestore's Cup, decorated with the most ancient and well-kept inscription in greek language, the first testimony in the entire Mediterranean sea. During the 1950s, both Lacco Ameno and the island of Ischia became famous thanks to the publisher and cinematographic producer Angelo Rizzoli, who also donated a hospital (the only one on the island).

In proximity of the historical centre there is the wonderful San Montano Bay, with fine sand and crystal-clear shallow waters. The main boulevard of Lacco Ameno fronts onto the sea and from here it is possible to admire the characteristic "Fungo", a tuffaceous rock that rolled down Mount Epomeo in ancient times and was smoothed by the sea until it had the shape of a mushroom.
