  • One of my new favorite places on this planet. We spent a short day exploring this beautiful town. I recommend the violin restaurant by the gondolas first pillar. The steak on the stone was phenomenal (be ready to flip it yourself and cook it to your own taste. If you like your meat well done, cut it into thinner slices).
  • I loved the museum, Nice rich information on the discovery, on columbus and the structure of the island please note you can also buy a double pass teleferico-museum, it'll be cheaper if you are visiting monte anyways.
  • Great food and beer also good views of the surrounding areas
  • City center a great place to visit.
  • The museum is closed since 2015, february 15th. Very sad
