Passing through the small roadways of this magical village, it is possible to see the dense residential area, with the tall and narrow houses with pastel coloured façades. We will continue right up to the Church of S. Giorgio to admire the scenery, take photos from the harbour brimming with boats and yachts or taste an ice-cream whilst sat comfortably at a table in one of the bars with their outdoor areas overlooking the sea, the liveliness of the shops and restaurants, must-experience places during any season.
