Crossing aboard a ferry lasting 1: 30/2: 00 very comfortably installed. In Sanmarini, an extraordinary French-speaking guide. You will learn the history of the Islands with a lot of very interesting anecdotes. Magnificent views and splendid architectures. A special thank you to the tour operator because I had to change the day because of the bad weather and it went without any problem.

Everything perfect! I recommend staying in the second city and not going on trips, then you have enough time to walk around. The ferry leaves at 8:40 a.m. it is enough if you arrive at 8 a.m. Then you have to exchange your vouacher for a boarding pass before the ferry.

Everything is at the top, the guide in the bus a history buff who knows his country perfectly. The organization between each break perfect visit !! For the rather expensive price a bottle of water or other attention would have been appreciable or the pick-up at the hotel because we had to pay a return taxi for 2 for 10 km 60 euros a bit exaggerated !!!! Otherwise dazzling santonin, fira also happy to have seen her once in my life.
