Traffic limitations on the island of Ischia

From time to time on the island of Ischia in summer (from June to September), are taken a number of limitations to the passage of private cars, to protect the tranquility of historic centers and the free flow of vehicular traffic.
All the major tourist centers become pedestrian areas, Ischia Ponte for only a few hours a day, allows vehicular traffic, the same applies to the center of Ischia, Forio Forio and Ischia. Sant'Angelo is completely pedestrian except for electric carts for the transport of goods and the handicapped, Casamicciola Terme has created permanent pedestrian, shopping and leisure area. The prohibition of landing limits the landing of vehicles movement of residents on the island of Ischia in Campania. The creation of large pedestrian areas, the lack of parking, the physical limit of a disproportionate growth of land transport on road, are pushing local governments to regulate with the limitations and prohibitions of vehicular traffic on the island.
Now the island offers a very efficient bus service, although insufficient to ensure quality growth and sustainable tourism. Unsatisfactory, it is instead the taxi service, poorly governed by individual local governments. We strongly recommend tourists who want to spend nice days of fun and relaxation on the island of Ischia, to opt for a holiday without a car, to reach the island if you arrive by train or by plane to buy a transfer to the hotel or apartment of your choice, to avoid disappointment, we will also arrange transfers to reach the destination in the shortest possible time, without thinking and with significant savings!
