La Maddalena Archipelago Boat Tour from Palau
244 reviews
The Maddalena Archipelago is a group of islands known for their spectacular beaches, crystal-clear waters, and unspoiled nature spots. Spend a day exploring islands that would be hard to reach alone, by going on this hassle-free scenic boat tour. Enjoy multiple stops, including the Isle of Budelli’s Spiaggia Rosa (Pink Beach), and the Isle of Spargi, with a tasty pasta lunch included too.

We are very sorry, but in the same building there are two museums. One, in the ground floor, is the Museo dell'Arte Mineraria and opens on saturday and sunday evening s from 6 pm to 8.30 pm (as explained in pur website e FB page) The second, on the stairs, is the Museo Mineralogico, and they put the sign that you saw on the gate.
