experience to repeat! we visited Giannutri and Giglio, beautiful places. guided tours are also offered on board once we disembark, although there is not much time for sightseeing and a swim, but sailing unfortunately takes its time. Everyone on board is nice and friendly, the captain a real character. we had a great day and ate well and plentiful food on board.
