"I try to go to the island."
Translation:Io provo ad andare all'isola.
Ah ok thanks, I thought that provare was being used as some sort of modal verb there. But I forgot to make it 'ad' in my example too. Is "sull'" then generally the preposition to use when using 'isola' as your location, similar to using 'in' when using a country as your location?
