Old stret of Ischia Ponte

After Ischia Ponte I had planned a visit to the tower of Guevara (Michelangelo). Although in a straight line until it was 300 meters, the Navigator drew a pretty intricate track length of over a kilometer. The route began Via San Giovan Giuseppe della Croce. The street is named in honor of a native of the island, the monk, the colleague of Peter of Alcantara, reformed order of Franciscans.

Go ahead, all for the same Via Soroncano, turning to the right. On the map this area is designated as Cimitero Vecchio (old cemetery), but instead of graves on the sides of the track lush blooming lilacs.

Reaching wide Via Nuova Cartaromana, I came to the finish line - to the tower, there was nothing left, and the road went downhill. To the left you could contemplate orange and lemon gardens, which looked out Aragonese castle.
