NEVER again to Ischia Italy

Jump to last reply

We have traveled to many places outside of the USA and even other parts of Italy but I have never disliked a place more. I have never posted a bad review on anyplace but I feel I must speak up Now. I am not sure If being American is making a difference here in Ishia or not but we have not encountered any good hospitality towards us.

BUT the worst of it was the 200 euro bus fine we got. We were on a very crowded bus the ticket stamp machine was in the back and couldn't get to it same as many locals. A man got on right before the last stop and I was holding my paid ticket in hand he pulled us off the bus ( but he didnt pull anyone else who hadn't stamped. first showed us 25 euro fine then doubledi it then tripled it . He tore my ticket like the other person local but he let them but continued to tell us we had to pay him. I tried to find someone who spoke english but the other guys at the bus terminal just shrugged their shoulders an laughed.

Sorry the words are a bit messed up typing on my phone and still very upset. We had no money left from paying the fine and had to walk from porto to our hotel in pointe ...not an easy stroll at this point.

If anyone reads this post ( like Peter british in ischia) I would like to fun out if there is anywhere an American can get help with the reduce loud fine we paid and the way we were treated. We werent just out the fine we had also just bought our tickets in a tabac shop.

What a scam, what rip off. I am full Italian and I have a great disdain for the Italian people here. It is very sad. And if I could I would get out of here today....
