If you have children, they will really enjoy this tour showing old mines architecture and the resources of this island. It's done by a little train, it takes not so much time and it's cheap. Shop is containing some nice souvenirs.

Yeah Minerals. HOWEVER take the train ride and get a ride through amazing nature and spectacular views! Which in it self is great, but best is, the stop on the top and you get handed tools to do some mining yourself AND keep the stones. Very nice and extremely informative. We had a great time. Afterwards get a fantastic Gelato... More
