Buona domenica a tutti/Happy Sunday to you all! The Italians use this type of phrase a lot more than we do. You can say things like "Buon Lavoro" (good work/have a good day's work), Buona Cena (good dinner/have a good dinner) and pretty much Buon, Buono or Buona followed by any activity you might be about to undertake. As far as I know we only have Happy Friday and Happy Thursday (which I invented just two days ago) so I think we need to work on this a bit. Anyway...it is Sunday and a glorious one at that, not a cloud in sight, a much calmer sea and one very relaxed island. Weather-wise things should be pretty steady for the next few days. The wind has caused a few rough sea issues over the last week or so but hopefully we'll have fewer of those for the foreseeable future. Today's top temperature should be half a smidgen under 25°C (77°F) and no lower than 20°C (68°F) tonight. Today's photo comes from the beautiful harbour of Forio. This is the busiest part of the island's second biggest town. By day it's a travel-hub with hydrofoils to and from Naples as well as the starting point for various boat trips to nearby destinations. Then by night it takes on a new persona with the young and trendy crowding around the harbour-side bars. This coming week is also a very important one for Forio as it's the Festa di San Vito, a week-long celebration of the town's patron saint with various activities planned including masses, religious processions, musical evenings and a big firework display to top it all off. I'll do my best to keep you all updated on those events via our Facebook page so keep an eye out for those updates as well as the regular weather snippets on our ferries and hydrofoils page. Back with more soon. Ciao :-)
