Silent atmosphere. Postcard landscapes and a service with a d’antan taste. Hotel Mezzatorre Resort & SPA in Forio d’Ischia is the perfect location for those who want to pull the plug from grey metropolitan autumn.


Converted from an old lookout tower built between the tenth and sixteenth century as a defense against Saracen raids, Hotel Mezzatorre, is surrounded by the Mediterranean, among  delicious flavors of the island and thermal water, a few minutes from Saint Montano bay. The Health & Beauty Center of the Resort is the main point for treatments and wellness cutting-edge programs. Three indoor swimming pools allow you to try the benefits of thalassotherapy and Kneipp, turkish bath, sauna, special showers and medical-aesthetic treatments. On top of this, the romantic Chandelier restaurant with a terrace overlooking the sea.


Islands are ships constantly at anchor“, wrote Truman Capote when landing in Forio in 1949. “Setting foot on an island is like getting on a boarding bridge: you are taken by the same sense of magical suspension, it seems that nothing bad nor vulgar can happen to you“. Staying at the Hotel Mezzatorre is like remaining suspended in an inert state of apparent calm. Magical and unforgettable feeling.
