For traditionalists: If you’re visiting at the end of July, don’t miss the celebration of the patron saint of fishermen at the St Anna Festival. To begin with, the harbour’s the place to be, where you’ll see parades of elaborately-decorated boats and some fiercely competitive races. The festivities culminate with the simulated burning of the Aragonese Castle and a fantastic firework display.
For film buffs: The Ischia Film Festival celebrates the unsung heroes of the film industry: the behind-the-scenes workers. Hosted at Aragonese Castle in June, you’ll get to watch some great films and do some serious celeb spotting!
