  • Good
  • Visit made very interesting thanks to a very friendly guide. Nevertheless the price is far too high to see only 3 small rooms. We had the chance to be a small group on time or we came but to 20 people we were already too many so that everyone can enjoy the tour fully. Visit feasible with a baby but far from practical, to avoid.
