Dating from the mid-19th century, it was at this hotel that so-called "thermal tourism" began, in one of the largest spas in the south of Italy—the bath where Giuseppe Garibaldi bathed is conserved in a corner. Sybaritic is the word to describe the decor: hypercolorful mosaic columns, gilded Stil Empire furniture, and lots of Las Vegas–ian glitz. The staff is ready to pamper you (and non-guests) with every kind of beauty treatment imaginable, and you can top it all
off in the open-air roof pool, surrounded by Ischia's rich vegetation. The Mosaic restaurant, the island's only with a Michelin Star, is successfully ambitious.
