Take the regular ferry to Limone - only takes 10-15 minutes. Buy the fragrant lemon scented soaps or the beautifully crafted Venetian masks - seek out the stylish men's fashions and have a coffee.

The Captain gave us a running commentary which was difficult to understand because of his very strong local Italian accent.
