Cheap to sail across. Return trip confusing times and we missed a boat and had to wait another hour despite checking with staff. Pretty cobbled streets. Didn't go in to palace/gardens as on pricey side but still worth the trip across.

This was a spectacular property to visit. We were with a tour company and they hired us a private guide. She was fantastic. The art and history of this place is so fascinating, and it really gives you a picture of Italian high society life....More
