the tour of the three islands perfect organizing excellent some flaws in identifying your boat since you go on board with a company and you stay with it until the end and it is difficult to identify your boat since there is no sign at the freight I have timetables of arrival or departure of your own boat at the beginning a little confusion then after the first embarkation and the first descent on the island you begin to understand that where you arrive you have to leave again and take your own company. vidonun suggestions as soon as you arrive at the ticket office you choose it the boarding company with the payment of the navigation pass you have to look at your ticket color and that will be your boat until the end of the tour the islands are all beautiful have fun summer a beautiful experience that can be done comfortably from the morning to the end of the evening 5pm: 30 comfortably without running

I booked the tour for me and my grandma Apart from the long wait between ferries as there were too many people and the ferries were very small it was a great experience Here maybe the only advice is to or increase the frequency of the ferries or use larger boats Otherwise put limited tickets on certain days

Very well organized! Boat every hour that brings and picks you up from island to island starting with isola madre then isola dei pescatori and finally isola Bella. It takes two hours on Madré and Bella if you visit the palaces (tickets extra) otherwise 1 hour is more than enough. I recommend

booked a family of 8, for isola madre, pescatore and bella. beautiful views and boat rides on time and very efficient. A must do !

The information was very good and you didn't have to search long. Top!
