Green hills surround the area, a haven of peace and silence. The hotel is 2 km from Ischia Port where the hydrofoils and ferries dock and can easily be reached both by car and by bus (the stop is in front of the hotel).

The island of
Ischia is amazing. It is the ideal place to spend a vacation in total relaxation, among salutary spas and green gardens, or keep busy with sports and seaside activities during the day and enjoy the restaurants and “movida” of Ischia by night, as well as the cultural life and social gatherings including visits to the Aragonese Castle and Tower of Michelangelo (200 meters from the Parco Cartaromana Hotel). There are also many events taking place in the island's towns and villages, such as Sant'Angelo and Forio , offering lots to see on land and sea. Ischia is of volcanic origin and famous around the world for its luxuriant vegetation and for its spa waters. Well known since ancient times, they attract wellness enthusiasts to the hotels, wellness centers, hydrotherapy spas, and to the magnificent spa garden parks that descend from the sloping hills all the way to the seashore.

The environs of the Parco Cartaromana Hotel
The ancient village of Ischia Ponte is 500 meters from the hotel and can be reached with a ten-minute walk. Crafts workshops, small shops, restaurants and pubs enliven the typical narrow streets offering pleasant walks. This is where the “bridge” begins, the long walkway leading to the impressive rock on which the Aragonese Castle rises.Also not far away from the Parco Cartaromana Hotel is the Tower of Michelangelo, now a museum and venue for events and exhibitions. Legend has it that Michelangelo Buonarroti, a guest in Ischia of his dear friend Vittoria Colonna, who lived in the Aragonese Castle for many years, spent time there.
It is a short walk from the hotel down to the Sant'Anna Rocks and to the lovely beach in the Bay of Cartaromana, , where the Aragonese Castle can be admired in all its grandeur. The private beach of the Parco Cartaromana Hotel is at Ischia Ponte, which can be quickly reached by scheduled buses that stop right in front of the hotel.

A must-see is
Sant'Angelo. The pretty village by the sea, once a fishing village, is now a haven for tourists in search of peace and wellness. After a day by the sea or at the spa, a drink at sunset in the small square surrounded by sea, sky and mountains is delightful.
"La Mortella" Botanical Gardens. This magnificent park of the villa of the same name, was commissioned by the English composer, William Walton (and his wife, Susana), who enjoyed going into retreat to regain energy and creativity for his music. It has many plants from all parts of the world arranged around scenic waterfalls, pagodas, and pools of water, etc.
Bay of Sorgeto. In a cove carved out of the high tufa that drops straight into the sea, Sorgeto beach is a miniature paradise of sea and spas. Hot freshwater thermal springs gush onto the shoreline and beneath the surface of the sea and form natural pools to plunge into. Well-known from ancient times, Sorgeto maintains its original wild fascination, softened by spectacular sunsets over the sea.
