Sunday in Mergellina

Over to the mainland, to enjoy the pleasures of a Sunday on the Chiaia seafront.

On AliLauro's catamaran - Acapulco Jet - it's just 30 minutes from Ischia Porto to
Mergellina, the city's 'other' hydrofoil port... a mile west of the main Molo Beverello.

From there, a walk through the gardens of the public park, the Villa Comunale, for the
Farmers' Market (NOTE: before going, do check if it's still held there - or perhaps now
in Piazza Dante, in the centre of town) and the historic Aquarium, before moving along
to Chiaia, for the Castel dell'Ovo, and lunch in the Borgo Marinari.

On the way back, after stopping in at Procida, sight of a distant waterspout, crossing
the route we'd just taken.
