Lacco Ameno

Lacco Ameno
The Essential
Lacco Ameno was the first Greek colony on the island, formerly known as Pithecusa (meaning "lots of monkeys"). While you are unlikely to meet many apes today (apart from the habitual tourist in shorts!), you may be interested to know that an Early Christian basilica and necropolis were discovered under the church of Santa Restituta of this exclusive cosmopolitan haunt.
