Among vineyards and sea, the walk toward Piano Liguori in Campagnano is one of the most beautiful and panoramic of the island of Ischia
Starting from the square of Campagnano, a small rural village on the hills of the municipality of Ischia, through the vineyards, the ancient village of Piano Liguori can be reached. The village consists of a few houses, where time stopped and life is still lived like in ancient years, when the water was taken from the well, and the heat was provided by a fireplace or a brazier. Just a few people live in this village. They farm a very fertile soil which produces plenty of grapes, fruit trees, and vegetables. Among the treats of this area, it is worth mentioning a special type of beans, called "zampognari", and an excellent olive oil.
The walk among the vineyards is really unforgettable: The land is arranged as terracing, so the eyes can look at the open sea, at the island of Capri, and at the creeks where seagulls live. Along the way, some benches are available to pause for a snack or to do some bird-watching: Hawks and kestrels live in these coasts.
Once you arrive at the restaurant, you are in the heart of the village. Wonder around these old houses made of volcanic rock and, eventually, continue your walk heading south-west. A small path will take you to the highlands, where you will be able to admire the bay of Scarrupata (southern area of the island). Otherwise, if you take another path downhill, you can reach the hill of Saint Pancrazio, where you will find a charming chapel which hosts the statue of the saint, and a vast panorama to admire.
