Fodor's Expert Review Compendio Garibaldino

La Maddalena Museum/Gallery Fodor's Choice

Pilgrims from around the world converge on the Compendio Garibaldino, a complex on Isola Caprera that not contains not only the restored home of Giuseppe Garibaldi (1807–82) but also his tomb. The national hero and military leader who laid the groundwork for the first unification of Italy in 1861 lived a simple life as a farmer on the island that he eventually owned. There are guided tours in Italian, and written guides in other languages. You can also buy a combined ticket for the Compendio and the Memoriale Giuseppe Garibaldi, 4 km (2½ miles) away, a multimedia museum that chronicles the swashbuckling career of the Italian hero. For both, take the ferry to Isola Maddalena and then the bridge to Caprera.
