Island Italy is a vacation for every taste. There is a place here for desperate misanthropes – for this there are uninhabited small islands where you can become a Robinson for a while, until you return to love for people and civilization.

As you know, you need to get to Ischia by boat from Naples. And Naples is such a city that everyone, as if by agreement, is described as “colorful.” And they speak with restraint about him, because – what if the interlocutor there still liked it? There are no comrades for the taste and color, and for some, linen hung from the windows, tattered walls, streets littered with garbage, and homeless people sleeping near expensive hotels will surely seem like a colorful sight.
Is this what I am writing to? And besides, after a colorful Naples and a 40-minute trip on a speed boat, where some might get sick, you don’t expect much from Ischia. Will not vomit – and thank God! And Continue reading
