Ischia, Saint Angelo village (Sant'Angelo d'Ischia)

After lunch I went to the most southern point of the island, to the beautiful town with name Sant'Angelo. In the town go the ring route buses CS and CD, from Ischia Porto you can take any (Ischa bus map). If you look at the map, clockwise (line CD) it's a lot closer, however, this segment passes through highland part of the island so it turns out that the "curved road is nearer". Actually, both routes takes the same amount of time, I took the bus that went earlier - CS. The trip took 25 minutes, in the village Fiorentino bus turned off the ringway and got down to the sea.

The bus not reach a little to the town, the passengers get off in a very picturesque place. People with suitcases took direction to the stairs leading to the upper part of the village, where there are many small snug hotels, and I did these photos. Ischia, Saint Angelo (Sant'Angelo d'Ischia)

The place for shooting was really favorable - both in terms of panoramic views as and illumination - not for nothing advise go here in the afternoon. Ischia, Saint Angelo (Sant'Angelo d'Ischia)

The road goes along the same puff of a cliff. This structure turned out after numerous eruptions and layers of lava. Volcanic rocks such as tuff, the material is unstable and breaks down by the wind and washed by the waves, forming a steep wall. Ischia, Saint Angelo (Sant'Angelo d'Ischia)
