Italy - Ischia Island - Lacco Ameno

Sent by Roberto from Ischia in Italy. This postcard shows the village of Lacco Ameno on the island of Ischia, in the bay of Naple.

This is from Wikipedia : Lacco Ameno is a town and comune situated in the northwest of the island of Ischia, in the Gulf of Naples off the west coast of Italy. The town has a population of around 4,600 inhabitants.

It is located at the feet of the Mount Epomeo, facing the sea. The name most likely derives from the Greek lakkos, meaning "stone". The name ameno was added to the official name in 1862.
