This place is stunning and well worth the visit if you like this sort of thing. It's worth going online and booking it from there as the boat only goes from different places each day, for instance we were in Torri del Benarco and the...More

Really pretty property but over priced and badly managed. We paid over 70 euros for a couple and they over booked for the trip so there was no space for my husband and I to sit on the boat which made for a VERY uncomfortable...More
