Once you arrive at the famed Mortella Gardens, you'll see firsthand why they won an award over one hundred competitors to be named "The Most Beautiful Park in Italy" in 2004. 
Carved into volcanic rock in 1949 by the late English composer Sir William Walton and his wife Lady Susana, Mortella Gardens were the ideal getaway and the couple's private home. 

Explore the Gardens and admire the wonderful sights of Ischia

You'll have some free time to wander through the gardens yourself, taking as much time as you desire to admire the unique collection of flora. You can purchase limited refreshments while at Mortella Gardens, but it would be a good idea to eat a big breakfast before departure.
To conclude the tour, you'll arrive at the port in time to take the ferry back to Sorrento, enjoying another ride on the peaceful Tyrrhenian Sea in the dusky late afternoon light.
