Evening folks. We're now right in the heart of the busiest part of the year and this is reflected in the number of e-mail requests we're receiving on various topics. Chief among those are the boat rental requests as everybody wants to get out on the water and have their own private space under the sunshine. That being the case I'd recommend making your requests as far in advance as possible because the boats are getting booked up rapidly now and that will only increase as we get into August. The private transfersand guided tours are a little easier to find availability for but again, if you do need something over the next few weeks the sooner you make the request the more likely we are to have availability. Today was the last day of the 2018 Ischia Global Film & Music Fest which was another great success and as it's July the big events keep coming thick and fast. Next up is arguably the biggest event of the year on the island, the Festa di Sant'Anna which takes place on Thursday 26th July in Ischia Ponte. The usually tranquil environs of the charming village will be overrun by thousands of people gathering to watch the sea parade, firework display and simulation of the castle burning while the castle itself will be surrounded by a huge armada of boats gathering to get the very best vantage points. In terms of the weather it's been a mostly sunny week but we've had a cloudy day today and that cloud has just thickened somewhat to give us a prematurely dark Sunday evening. According to the forecasts it's nothing more than a blip though and we should be in for a brighter day tomorrow, albeit with the threat of some wind in the afternoon. I'll sign off with a photo of Castello Aragonese looking nice and peaceful, the calm before the metaphorical storm to come on Thursday. I'll be back with another update soon so for now - ciao :-)
