It is really a good historical place but you are not allowed to walk near to the building and the island is not that big.

The trip is very organised , perhaps too organised. You are allowed to walk on one side of the island, on a wooden path and not distance yourself not even 2 m from group. So all the rest you have to leave for your imagination....

Could have been nice if we had been able to dock. The sea was very rough and the captain made the right choice. I had unfortunately bought the ticket online the day before. Wouldn't​ have bothered in this weather even try otherwise. Book only if...More
