Nearly five years ago, I spent my first nights in Forio at Hotel Lord Byron, for the equivalent of $50 US per night. The rate may be slightly higher now, but nevertheless is an all-time travel bargain. The facilities are absolutely splendid, and include a thermal pool fed by a volcanic spring, an outdoor pool, and a quality restaurant.
