I was tired of the stampede of tour buses throughout Italy this summer, so I began looking for a place to try to experience Italy without a bunch of other tourists and bad souvenir shops.  I had an extra week of time to spend in Italy and I wanted to find something different.  I was done with shopping and seeing ruins, so I set out to find a place to enjoy the beautiful blue seas that Italy had to offer – I wanted to sail! I searched all over for a nice, quiet location with sailing instruction; and with a mid-range budget I never really thought I would find a place that would fit all of these things. However, Google pulled up Le Zagare in Ischia, my paradise in the tourist filled country of Italy!


If you aren’t interested in a sailing course, but still want to work on your tan and be out on the sea, then you could simply be a passenger for the day on the boat. sitting back and relaxing as the students raise sails and learn to navigate.  If the thought of sailing seems scary (or nauseous), then there are plenty of other things to do on Ishcia.  Kate was constantly providing me with ideas of places to go and assistance on how to get there.  She even let me use their bus passes and phone cards that she had – going above and beyond what I would ever expect of a hotel.  The breakfast they served was plentiful with some wonderful background music for ambiance.


le zagareIshcia is known for its spas and thermal pools, as well as the La Mortella Botanical Garden and various castles to explore.  There are about six little fishing towns peppered throughout the island that are worth visiting, all connected by a simple to use bus line circling the island.  There are also hiking and biking trails in addition to good, peaceful beach time. However, my favorite thing to do was to simply pick up some salami, cheese, tomatoes, and beer utilizing my broken Italian language skills and sit on my beautiful terrace eating my snacks and watching the sun set.


le zagareMy stay at Le Zagare was one of my favorite stops on my two month tour of Italy.  Thanks to the hospitality of Andrea and Kate I felt like Le Zagare was my home away from home.  My advice to anyone vacationing near the Amalfi Coast, skip Capri and head to Ischia for some real Italian culture, sea, and sunsets.
