... be calm as it was a1 and a half hour trip. We couldn't have had a better day as the sea was like glass.

Our hotel, Hotel Marina Piccola, was in a perfect location. Our room had a tiny balcony with ocean views. Why pay to sit in a cafe for a beer and wine when no one had our view (nor price, if you buy the beer in the store 0.85 € or 5 or 6 € in ...
