Personalised and custom-planned experiences in Ischia
Are you dreaming about visiting the island of Ischia, but you’re overwhelmed by the amount of information out there?
Maybe you’re unsure about which information you can trust or frustrated by not being about to find the information that you need, maybe you’re nervous about not knowing the language or traveling about Ischia on your own?
I’m here for you! Let’s explore together!
I offer half day and full day private and personal outings, taking you to places that may not be on typical itineraries.
I can also take you by car to some of the more difficult to reach places with public transportation.
There are just some of the things we could do:
- a wine tasting at a vineyard
- A boat ride to a beach side restaurant
- a visit to a goat farm where they make cheese
- dinner at a mountain top restaurant where you can try the local rabbit
- a hike to a beach with thermal water, your own natural hot springs
- a heritage walking tour with a historian to discover your roots
I’m Giovanna Coppola, creator of The Limonata Lounge and lover of Ischia and Italy. My mother is from Ischia and I visited Ischia almost every year with my family and friends for most of my life until I decided to live here full-time.
I love connecting with people on a personal level and I love sharing what I’ve learned and love about Ischia and living in Italy.
We’ll first connect by email and have a call on Skype or WhatsApp before your arrival to find out your particular interests so I can decide on places we can go to together. If you have a specific goal in mind we can talk about options. Depending on what you’d like to see and do, I can introduce you to friends on the island who are tour guides, museum directors, historians, artists and writers.
Walks: €30/hour for private walks. I like to keep activities specific to a certain town or area as we won’t be able to see all of Ischia in one day. The maximum group size for walks is 5 people. We’ll chat beforehand and answer any questions you might have.
Outings by Car: €350 for up to 4 hours, €500 for up to 6 hours
This car rate is for up 3 people. I am unable to accommodate more than 3 people in the car.
Outings do not include meals, wine tastings, museum or thermal bath entrances.
If you want to travel independently, but would like to have a chat on what there is to do, I offer travel planning advice at €50/hour at a minimum of 1 hour.
Giovanna organized a wonderful trip for my family in Ischia. She was especially helpful with my 10-month old son. She did everything from finding us a babysitter so my partner and I could go scuba diving together, to getting a baby life jacket so we could all go on a boat tour. We really appreciated her suggestions on the best restaurants, beaches, and thermal parks for families. We’ve all had a lovely relaxing holiday playing in and around the water. – Rachel, London
Our family spent some time in Ischia this summer. Giovanna made the whole experience super smooth! We were given great recommendations on spas, beaches, restaurants, and activities suitable for couples with young children. She stepped in to help communicate with our Airbnb host when we needed and even found a babysitter to accompany us to the beach so me and my partner could go snorkeling together. Thanks for everything and see you next year! – Diogo, Lisbon
