Giardini Ravino

... on the Via Provinciale Panza, just outside Forio

A wonderful garden that concentrates mainly on cacti and succulents,
created and opened only recently by a returning islander, Giuseppe d'Ambra,
with the help of Ischian landscape architect Nello Ascanio and the agronomist
Dottore Massimo Malatesta.

Not very much in English on their website, but see... http://www.ravino.it/

Note that, at the time of writing, the gardens are closed on Tuesdays and Thursdays

To get there from Ischia Porto, take any of these buses: CS, 1 or 2.
