    The hop on hop off tour was very nice. We started with the ferry. It was more pleasant than with the speed boat. In March it is still a bit fresh in the morning. The islands are very beautiful. You can also eat very well on Deserta. The speedboat then went on. Farol is a ghost town at this time. But it was very nice in the culatra
