Villa Arbusto in Lacco Ameno encloses like a jewel box the most beautiful jewels of the ancient settlements euboeans in Ischia, but the most amazing thing is the cup of Nestor. "The cup of Nestor ... good drinkin'. But those who drink from this Cup,...More

Although small it is full of wonderful artefacts . An archaeologist was on hand to explain. The history of the island was revealed. More should be available in the English language.
