Friday 5th October 2018
Hello! So we're now well into October and autumn already has a couple of weeks under its belt, gradually changing the colour and shape of the landscape as we head towards the cooler months. This is traditionally the month where the tourist season starts to ebb away but we're not quite finished just yet. Despite some mixed weather this week there are still plenty of people visiting the island and most attractions stay open at least until the middle of the month, notable among those is Poseidon Thermal Gardens which will be open until 31st October. We haven't been able to get any boats out on the water this week as the sea has been too rough but things are looking much more positive for next week, particularly on Monday with temperatures expected to reach the mid 20's (25° Celsius = 77° Fahrenheit). Most restaurants will be open for the majority of this month and although some hotels will start closing around the 15th, there are still plenty of other accommodation options to consider. We're still getting lots of enquiries for private transfers from Naples as well so please keep those coming in and we'll be very happy to look after those requests. The same applies for anyone thinking of coming to Ischia next year, if there's anything you're not sure about then just drop us a line and we'll be happy to help. For Today's Photo I've broken with tradition somewhat and not used one of my own. There's a huge concentration of very talented photographers on this island which I think is largely down to the veritable feast of photogenic sights all around Ischia and one such photographer really caught my eye this week with his shot of Chiesa del Soccorso in Forio so beautifully lit at night time. The name of this photographer is Ilia Dumitro and you can find some of his work here on his Instagram page. Ok so that's all from me for now, remember you can drop me a line if there's anything you need to know about the services we offer or about Ischia in general so don't feel shy about coming forward if you need something. Ciao :-)
