Good evening everyone. The sun is slowly making its way down to the horizon at the end of what has been a beautiful day on the island. Right now at 19:20 the temperature is 23°C (73°F) and we're still more than an hour away from one of those spectacular Forio sunsets. To be precise, the sunset tonight will take place at 20:36, just two minutes short of the latest it gets with the longest day of the year arriving in just under a week (21st June). Now if you've been observant over the last few days you may have noticed a little tournament known as the World Cup taking place. If you're a football fan you'll be pleased to hear that all of the matches are being screened live on terrestrial TV here so you won't need to miss any of the action if you're coming here on holiday over the next month or so however I do accept this may come as bad news if you're not a fan and were hoping to get away from it. If that's the case then you can content yourself with the dozens of beautiful beaches, hot weather, thermal water parks, mountain walking routes and top-notch Mediterranean cuisine that Ischia has to offer. Just one such beach is the one in Lacco Ameno which is the subject of today's photo. Although the smallest town on the island it's packed with great restaurants, beaches and the famous Negombo Thermal Gardens which I can thoroughly recommend for a day out. I'll be back with another update soon so until then, ciao :-)
