    The boat cruise was fun and started on time. The boat itself was comfortable but be aware that you can get wet when the driver speeds up. We didn't pass under the drawbridge of the Scaligero Castle as described in the activity, but we did enjoy the views and brief narrations (Italian from the boat driver; English from a recording).

    Relaxing and also a bit of action for the little ones. It's a leisurely ride up to the turning point at the visibly rising bubbles of the thermal spring. On the way back, the captain accelerates with his 300 hp boat, which is obviously fun for all passengers, but the children love it. So the investment (30 euros for a family with 2 children) is definitely worth it!

    Very nice! Fantastic during a hot day, on the boat there is a tent and you can stay in the shade or those who prefer the sun, the wind and the drops of water add a very pleasant feeling. The boat stops for a moment in front of important places and the guide explains well in Italian and English what can be seen on the peninsula. Recommended!
