Jennifer Lopez's European Family Vacation

When Jennifer Lopez recently escaped for a family vacation, she chose Ischia, a gem of an island just thirty kilometers off the coast of Naples. By-passing Ischia's better known neighbor, Capri, the singing mega-star and her family settled into the Mezzatorre Resort and Spa with its award-winning treatment facility and a breathtaking view of the Tyrrhenian Sea.

Like all visitors to Ischia, the Lopez entourage arrived by sea. They were greeted by the extraordinary sight of Mount Epomeo, the volcanic peak that rises from the Bay of Naples to create this isle of fertility.

The Mezzatorre Resort provides on site services either in their own spa facilities or in the privacy of guest suites. You don't have to be Jennifer Lopez to do as she did -- order a massage and then dinner on the terrace of her Grand Suite! Not surprisingly, fellow guests enjoyed the chance to chat with the famous couple at the Mezzatorre's La Terrazza bar where Limoncello Liquer is a popular favorite.

Even a party as large as the Lopez' (17 including children, nanny, staff and body-guards) wouldn't want to miss Ischia's most famous historical attraction, the Aragonese Castle.

No visit to Ischia is complete without time on the water. Often visitors take a day trip on the ferry to Capri for some shopping and people watching. Ms. Lopez enjoyed her excursion on a friend's yacht (Dolce & Gabbana) and were spotted by celebrity watchers lunching with top model Naomi Campbell and her Russian fiancée, Vladislav Doronin. It appears that word of la dolce vita, the good life is getting around!
