We just returned from a week in Italy and I must say that the day we spent on the Madonna with Franco as our captain was the highlight of the week. We were a group of 10 people and loved every minute we spent on the water. The trip into the town of Capri was just "so-so"...too many tourists but we found our way along a path to a high cliff and enjoyed the view...the rest of the day on the water was magnificent. It was as if Franco could read our minds...he knew exactly what we wanted to do and how long we wanted to stay...we swam, visited all the beautiful grottos and passed slowly by the fantastic cliffs, he dropped us for a nice lunch(a little pricey compared to what you pay on the mainland) and after, we enjoyed a slow trip back to our little harbor in Massa Lubrense. He was charming and an excellent captain. A day I will remember as relaxing and peaceful in the October sunshine.
