Have a go on the ‘Ogigia’

Particularly exciting on holidays with children in villas Italy are trips with a glass bottom boat and the underwater excursion boat Ogigia. Especially in the submarine-like substructure of the Ogigia, which opens up the great underwater world for your little ones in a very special way. Ogigia takes off in the summer from the port Darsena di Le Castella or the Castello Aragonese di Le Castella, where the glass-bottomed boats also leave. This is a great one to remember if you want to explore the underwater world of colourful fish. Whilst equally recommended for nature experiences are villas in Sicily and villas in Sardinia.
