All around, you will enjoy a backdrop of breathtaking views over the cliffs and the beaches in the northern coast of the island.
The main points of interest of this tour are: the Medici fortresses and Forte Falcone, Napoleon's Villa (Palazzina dei Mulini), the Linguella archaeological area and the Passannante tower.
