Staying up in the Castello is cool and breezy, no air conditioning required. The people are friendly and helpful with breakfast bars for morning coffee, delis for packing a lunch and frequent bus service to the port and beaches.

We spent the day at the Island, which you get to by ferry. I highly recommend renting Vespas for the day and driving around the entire island. The beaches are great too.
