  • The visit on the island was very interesting, the guide was very educational and I learned things I didn't know. I do not regret having gone, but which gives a lot of penalty is to see how the national heritage was neglected since much of the historic buildings on the island today no longer exist. I am very sorry. Cacciola travel is regular, the boat is not very comfortable or is in good condition. The food on the island is regular, but acceptable.
