Spiaggia di Citara, Forio

3.0
#2 of 19 in Outdoors in Isola d'Ischia
Spiaggia di Citara is famous for its hot springs, which seep out of the volcanic rock bed to warm the sea. It's also home to the Poseidon Gardens, a thermal park where the hot springs filter into a series of pools, getting hotter as you ascend the hillside to the source. Syracusan settlers were the first to appreciate the area. They erected a temple here in honor of Venus Citarea. Before you visit Forio, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

  • The Lido Beach, small, overcrowded, dirty, Galleon's had for lunch ... Lunch less than mediocre and at the time of the account, the owner, arrogant enough, comes with a small sheet of handwritten notebook: 61 euros (for two starters and a starter ...) ... Aware of the illegality of non-receipt, I introduced myself to pay with a credit card ... He looked at askance, wondering: but pay with the card? Sure, I replied. He looked at the Bill and said: so 64 euros ... Made the operation, I was not released any receipt, perhaps not knowing that, for each bar pos, there must be a receipt, you may not even know what his. You are very far from this place is from these people. ...
