Even on sunday not much visitors. Quite peaceful and calm area. Not a must see place for me! You can visit san gulio island by boat. Sone cafes and restaurants are available but donnot expect much. All the area is avarage for food.

Just an amazing place with crystal clear waters that invite you in for a dip, traditional Italian narrow streets, amazing food, stunning views and a UNESCO world heritage site. Not overcrowded but with a relaxing, romantic ambience.
