What you'll do

During the itinerary we will at first pass through the Vignole island, then we will overtake Sant' Erasmo, and at last we will stop at San Francesco del deserto island which we'll have the chance to explore.
Artists and poets got inspired during the centuries by the charm of San Francesco del deserto's island. We will visit the omonimous monastery and a friar will lead us through a historical-religious tour.
Moreover you will enjoy the peace and magical atmosphere this place offers, in facts the island of San Francesco del deserto is unreachable by public transports and this makes this site not well known by tourists and hardly reachable.
