Ischia Porto

The port was created from a volcanic crater lake that once contained only brackish water.

It was opened to the sea in 1854, and at the end of the gallery there are pictures showing the fireworks,
and procession of historic ships, that celebrated the event's 150th Anniversary on 17th September 2004.
