What you'll do

The experience lasts about 2.30h and involves the participants introducing them to the Ischian atmosphere like real locals.

We will walk from Ischia Ponte to Ischia Porto, we will cross the main street of Ischia reaching the Riva Destra.

My desire is to create an engaging and genuinely Ischia experience, providing practical information on the activities preferred by the locals and committing myself to suggesting what also corresponds to the needs of the traveler and which at the same time support local activities.

The group of people who will participate will be composed of a small number of participants, so that I can devote all my attention to them.

I help those who are lucky enough to experience the island of Ischia, to avoid wasting too much time with endless and often useless online searches, and, to have genuine, sincere and valid advice, to explore the place and experience it as a traveler and not a tourist.

My intent is to put travelers in contact with the people who make my island wonderful, helping them to live experiences capable of moving and returning home enriched in a profound, meaningful and engaging way.

I am not a guide, but a concierge, during the experience I will not provide historical information, but, in case, I will be happy to suggest guides on the island!

Born in Ischia, I have traveled, studied and worked while living between Europe, the USA and Australia.
After 15 years, the bond with my island has led me to live in my land and promote its beauties that I carried in my heart during my travels.

Curious by nature, I am always ready to share experiences and information and constantly looking for stimuli and news.
During my travels I have preferred “typical” and local experiences over the usual mass tourism attractions, defining myself as a traveler rather than a tourist.

I want to be able to give the same to those lucky enough to discover my island.

Always attentive to the environment, nature and sustainability, I have developed and cultivated a strong passion for yoga, marketing, training, art, meditation and sustainable tourism, and of course food and wine!

As a solo traveller, I can’t recommend this experience enough! I had the chance to walk around beautiful Ischia with Fernanda and truly grasp all of its beauty. I felt welcomed, accommodated, and very excited! I also discovered Fernanda is the older version of myself, which made it even more special. 😹 I hope to be back soon and experience it all over again. Fernanda knows all of the good spots and will emerge you into the amazing local exposure you need! 🧡

The end of a long day with Fernanda will remain one of my best memories of Ischia. The tour was great, like walking with a friend in their hometown, chatting, sharing best locals places, having great food and wine. Fernanda is very friendly, could really make anyone at ease, and so helpful. it was a pleasure meeting her and i cannot recommend this experience enough!

Amazing tour, definitely recommend. We learnt so much about life in Ischia, from the point of view of a local. Fernanda and her boyfriend were so friendly, made us feel at ease; and gave us great tips about Ischia and Italy in general!

Fernanda’s experience was by far our favorite part of Ischia. She went out of her way to make our small group feel like locals as she took us to some of her favorite places on the island. After the tour, she has been an invaluable resource to us (and the others on the tour) by providing suggestions for restaurants, beaches and other activities on the island. We’re so glad we had the chance to meet her, and would highly recommend this experience to anyone coming to Ischia!

We had a great time with Fernanda. We did not know what to expect, and it turned it up to be one of the best things we experienced in our trip. Will definitely recommend it!
