Good afternoon everyone on Friday 23rd April. The weekend is almost upon us and a new version of the blog has already landed. The Friday blog will now be called Top Ten on Friday and feature the most recent Top Ten list of places in Italy. Last week I put together the Top Ten Piazzas in Italy list and the week before that it was the Top Ten Cities in Italy.
For those of you that are interested in the latest pandemic facts and figures, they are kept up to date every day on the home page with a bulletin put out every late afternoon/early evening once the new data has been announced. The regular blog will be back as usual on Monday with the Coronavirus updates continuing over the weekend. One update I will announce here though is that the R rate has just gone down a bit further: it's now 0.81 and crucially lower than one.
So what's today's Top Ten I hear you ask? Ok, maybe I didn't hear that at all but I'm going to tell you anyway. It's the Top Ten Italian Islands. In many ways this was an easy list for me to put together as I've personally visited more than 60 Italian islands but narrowing it down to just ten was tricky and a little bit heart-wrenching. I have done it now though and I'm fine so don't worry.
I'll leave you with a few teasers as to which islands may have made the list and you can find the full article at the Top Ten Italian Islands link. By the way, one of the islands in the photos below didn't make the list - "but which one?" and "why ever not?" I speculatively hear you ask again. All is revealed on the website.
Have a great weekend, let me know what you think of the list and I'll be back on Monday.
