Green Itinerary on the Island

Moving to Ischia and precisely to Forio City, near Walton house Gardens, called Mortella gardens.

Those gardens were born on 1956 by will of Susana and her husband William Walton, a famous English musician. With the help of Russell Page, one of the greatest landscapists architects of the Twentieth century, and friend of the Waltons, an enormous volcanic stony ground was turned into a tropical eden of 16.000 square mts, with more than 1000 kinds of rare plants.
In this garden there are orchids, ninphea, lotus flowers, Ginkgo biloba great trees, the so-called crocodile fall, and the Thai Room. From Forio to Serrara Fontana there is a path of about three hours walking, which leads to the Epomeo Mountain, the highest peak of the island, with its rocky installations dug-out in the tufo.
