  • A unique place!! The ferry trip on its own was awesome and provided great views. There is an entrance fee to the church. I don't mind paying it, but it was a surprise because all the tourist brochures said it was free to visit. Remember to take a water bottle, it can get really hot waiting for the ferry back.
  • What a marvelous place! A small but beautiful church with lots of frescoes and such a view. It's also not expensive for Italian standards.
