esperienza da ripetere! abbiamo visitato Giannutri e il Giglio, posti splendidi. vengono anche proposte a bordo gite guidate una volta sbarcati, anche se il tempo non è tantissimo per le visite e un bagno, ma la navigazione purtroppo prende il suo tempo. A bordo sono tutti gentili e simpatici, il comandante un vero personaggio. abbiamo trascorso una bella giornata e a bordo mangiato bene e abbondante.
