Afternoon everyone. So we're now in the middle of October and things are slowing down in Ischia with many hotels and restaurants soon to close for their winter hibernation. That's not to say you can't visit Ischia during this time, there are still dozens of places to stay and places to eat that stay open all year round and no shortage of crossings to and from Naples. The subject of this week's photo is Lacco Ameno, the smallest of the six towns on the island. Despite its size, Lacco Ameno offers a bit of everything in a compact area which makes it a great option for a holiday. Staying in the town centre you have the beach, plenty of shops and restaurants as well as Negombo Thermal Gardens all within a short walk. I'll be back with another update next week so until then, ciao :-).
Morning folks. It's been another great week in Ischia and it's now time to look ahead at the next seven days. On the weather front we're in for a bit of a mixture with sunshine, cloud, wind and rain all set to enter stage left and right to perform their various roles. Although many visitors and locals alike will still be gravitating towards the beaches this week, there are increasingly more people that come to Ischia to enjoy some of its many walking routes. During the summer months it can get simply too hot to go on long walks but even though we still have nice warm afternoons, the temperatures allow for rambling hikes around the island with some wonderful views and the chance to explore some of Ischia's lesser-known spots. Ok so have a great week and I'll be back soon. Ciao :-)
Hello! It's a whole week since my last update and what a week it's been. Weather-wise it's been great with warm sunshine every day until yesterday when a huge cloud engulfed the island before unleashing its wares in biblical fashion this morning. October marks a significant shift in the annual cycle of life in Ischia, most hotels, restaurants and thermal parks will stay open until the middle of the month ahead of their autumn/winter hibernation so these next two weeks are a great time to come here with the weather expected to be good and more space around in general with the reduced amount of visitors. This week's photo was taken from Cava Grado Beach in Sant'Angelo, the beauty of the scene matched by the beauty on the beach itself. Back next week, ciao :-)
