Morning all! We've got a beautiful day on our hands here on the last day of May. The weather has been a bit up and down over the last month but looking at the forecasts now we're set fair for the foreseeable future. Temperatures today should be up around 24°C (75°F) by this afternoon and no lower than 20°C (68°F) this evening so no jackets or jumpers necessary. I can feel in my bones that it's going to be a really busy weekend here, a combination of the great weather and Saturday being a national holiday in Italy (La Festa della Repubblica) means we'll see a larger influx than usual. It's been fairly quiet here of late so it'll be nice to see the buzz returning. For today's photo I've chosen Castello Aragonese in Ischia Ponte. It's more than 6 years now since I first saw it but it never fails to dazzle me. When you walk through Ischia Ponte and see the castle looming at the end it has a magical presence and from certain angles just seems to be hovering over the water. This really is a must-see for any visit to the island and the village itself is also a great place to visit day or night with lots of bars, restaurants and shops to browse through. Anyway, remember I'm here to help you enjoy your time on the island in whichever way I can so feel free to ask if you need some ideas or inspiration for things to see or do. I'll be back with another update soon so keep an eye out for that both here on our homepage as well as on our social networking sites. I hear from so many of you by e-mail but it would also be great to see more of your photos so please feel free to post those with any comments on our Facebook page. Ciao :-)
