The place, easily accessible once the visit has been booked, has a certain charm for both historical aspects (museum and various finds) and naturalistic ones. The guide we found was particularly knowledgeable, friendly and helpful in providing clarifications and explanations. Perhaps the place deserves more attention from the municipality also depending on the intense archaeological volunteering that takes place there.

The novo lazzaretto, on the other hand, was a real prevention facility with houses and construction facilities for the quarantine of suspicious goods. In the 1800s it became a military zone and even today you can see the various transformations to make it fortified and the toll booths by dust. A mercurial place that tells years of history, absolutely to visit!
Beautiful island with a dark history. The archeological preservation is very impressive.
The guide was exhaustive. Very interesting all, pleasing tales of a fascinating past.
