A tiny island, little more than a rock-cliff, which is occupied almost entirely by a small, rustic village with narrow, winding lanes.

This small island is very easy to traverse, mostly tourist shops with restaurants. Relaxing to stroll around and good place to have lunch.

Lovely little island to stop off at while doing a tour of the lake with a boat. Nice little restaurants and a good hotel. Tourist shops and a pleasant walk around the narrow cobbled lanes.
