Day 11 - Sunday 8th June 2014

Sunday was another easy day. The weather was perfect, sunny, little cloud and light wind.  Because of the weekend crowds some of the older ferry boats, including a side paddle wheel version, had been pressed into service.

We walked all over the peninsular, ending up in the town where we looked at the church - a very old structure possibly incorporating stone robbed from the villa at the seaward end of the promontory.  The porch on the front is supported by re-used Roman period columns, one of which was an inscribed milestone.
