Excellent day on the Island - having the Viator voucher made it smooth sailing.

The Ferry arrived on time, was clean & the staff was delightful. There were bathroom facilities as soon as you leave the port. There were fresh baked good & snacks along with a wide assortment of alcoholic & non alcoholic beverages. The price was affordable. The entire experience (my 3rd time) was awesome.
The island is an amazing day drip that you should do at least 1 time in your life.

The only disappointing part is that 6 hours is not enough to spend in Monaco. There's plenty to do and see there. The boat trip itself is also great, going pretty close to the marvelous coastline.

Siamo partiti col traghetto dal porto di Cannes, parte ogni ora.
Le isole sono verdi molto belle si girano facilmente ma i sentieri soprattutto quelli in torno alla fortezza non sono segnalati benissimo. Noi abbiamo imboccato un sentiero che faceva il giro delle mura ma siamo dovuti tornare indietro perché dopo un km circa ci siamo trovati davanti ad una rampa di scale e col passeggino era un po' difficile. Per il resto bella pulita belle calette tranquille dove rilassarsi. Noi siamo andati di lunedì e il museo purtroppo era chiuso, abbiamo fatto un giro dentro le mura, molto interessante l'iniziativa di fare ristrutturare tutto dai ragazzi ( supervisionati naturalmente). Ci torneremo per vedere il museo.
