With summer winding down, we’ve been thinking about how we’d hoped to get to the beach more often, not just any beach of course but a beach in Italy … This slide show on CNN.com, right HERE, really gave us a serious case of wanderlust with a fixation on Italy’s islands. Check out these stunning shots of Capri, Sicily, Sardinia and the delightful island of Panarea in the Tyrrhenian Sea off the southwestern coast of Italy.
Of course fall is a great time to get to an island in Italy. The weather can be warm enough to take a swim, or loll on one of those striped chaises on the beach.
Speaking of Italy islands, here are a few fun facts about them. There are, according to this Wikipedia entry, 60-plus islands in the Mediterranean as well as 20-plus Islands in Italian lakes. Behold this list of enticing Mediterranean islands. Do we have a favorite? Yes and no. Yes because Tour Italy Now has a personal connection to the island of Ischia. (We’ll be telling you all about that this fall!.) No because we consider ourselves equal island admirers! Remember when you are planning your next Italy vacation, many of Tour Italy Now’s escorted tours visit the isle of Capri.
