The Bay of Sant’Angelo d’Ischia

Here’s a picturesque little dot out at sea that I’m sure you’ll enjoy — Ischia (EE-skee-ah).

Sant'Angelo d'Ischia, Italy | ©Tom Palladio ImagesThe largest island in the Phelgrean Archipelago — just at the northern end of the Bay of Naples in the Mare Tirreno (Tyrrhanean Sea) — Ischia is where about six-million tourists come annually to enjoy la dolce vita (the sweet life), for a week, a month or for a season.

One of the most picturesque BAYS in the world lies on the backside of the island at Sant’Angelo d’Ischia. It’s actually the jewel of the island, tucked away — like a quiet fishing village should — far from the madding crowd.

Enjoy the views.

Tom swapped his hometown St. Louis Cardinals' baseball cap in the United States for a Borsalino and he now hangs his "cappello" in the Puglia region of southeastern Italy. A veteran print and broadcast journalist, with well-worn passports that have got him into and out of 50 countries and counting, Tom fell in love with the "Bel Paese" years ago. As he notes, "I'm inspired by the beauty I find in all things that are very, very old, and reliving history, or at least meandering along the travertine and cobblestone that were laid down over a thousand years ago and just looking up and marveling at what occupies the space still today, really gets my 'Vespa' running." Tom has a good eye behind the lens and is a graphic storyteller, but he'll let you decide as he keeps his camera batteries fully charged and the posts flowing from his creative hideaway in the hills overlooking Ostuni. You can also follow his dispatches via and Anthology Magazine Ireland.


    1. Procida, si, and Capri, but none of the others…YET! I often go off the beaten path, it’s my preferred direction. About Puglia, I just can’t say enough about it. I love the Salento area even more. Have a great trip!


      1. Go off the beaten path Tom, you will find surprises. I am taking a group to Puglia April 15, 2013 to places they can’t even imagine. I am from those parts, I know Puglia in and out, my group will love it.
