Buongiorno a tutti! My blog updates are getting more and more spaced-out these days (you can read that in two ways but I'm definitely speaking in terms of time!) as the summer takes a firm grip on daily proceedings. Taking a quick glance back at May: it was a rather unusual month of weather as a freak cold spell took hold throughout Italy but now that we're into June, conditions seem to be stabilising somewhat. Given the disappointing May, we should be in for a glorious summer and autumn to make up for it, (that is how it works isn't it?) and there's so much to look forward to over the remaining 5 months or so of the season.
With regard to things to see and do, anything that's anything on the island is now fully up and running and it's all systems go from now until the middle of October. In the middle of June we'll see the direct hydrofoil services between Ischia and the Amalfi Coast start again and those will remain available until the middle of September. At the time of writing (3rd June), the tickets aren't yet available through our booking engines but they will be soon and the first hydrofoil will be leaving Amalfi on 15th June.
Despite the cool temperatures in May, we've been enormously busy with requests for our services such as Private Transfers, Boat Rentals, Taxi Tours and Boat Tours. We always prioritise our clients' e-mails above everything else but as a result, there are some pages on the website which we haven't had a chance to update yet with the latest timetables and prices etc. We are working our way through those at the moment but if you do see anything you're not quite sure about, please drop us a line to ask and we'll be happy to confirm anything you're unclear on.
I've included a photo of Cartaromana Beach in Ischia Ponte on today's blog, for no other reason than it shows what summertime in Ischia is all about. Italy is full of beautiful, dramatic, charming views but I'm yet to see anywhere quite as beautiful as Castello Aragonese.
Anyway, that's all from me for now; looking forward to a wonderful month of June and hearing from all you lucky people about to make your way to Ischia! :-)
