Discover the captivating beauty of the La Mortella Gardens in Ischia with this exclusive guided tour.
The island of Ischia is a hidden gem nestled in the Tyrrhenian Sea that is famous for its glorious island vistas, especially its magical Mediterranean gardens. In particular, the La Mortella Gardens are a delight to visit and, with this Ischia tour, you can enjoy the gardens in all their glory with a special guided tour.
Our tour of Ischia’s gardens begins with a relaxing bus ride through Ischia’s most charming island sights to the Hill of Zaro, which sits in a prime location on one of the corners of Ischia’s main island. During the bus tour, you will be able to take in the stunning coastal scenery that Ischia is famous for and see rare wildlife, including birds native to this special corner of the Mediterreanean, as well as unusual Mediterranean plants, including blossoming myrtles. Once at the Hill of Zaro, you will be taken to the beautiful La Mortella villa, which was once owned by the famous composer Sir William Walton and today is still home to Sir Walton’s wife, Lady Susana Walton. The villa is surrounded by a vibrant garden, which was designed by the English landscape designer Russell Page and features beautifully manicured flower beds, pools and glistening fountains spread over 16,000 square metres. You will have two to three hours in the gardens, allowing you to relax and enjoy the natural sights at your own pace before you are taken by bus back to Ischia port.
