Esperienza unica e indimenticabile. La nostra guida, Barbara Simari ci ha accompagnato in questo immenso patrimonio artistico e culturale, con grande passione e professionalità, riuscendo a conquistare l'attenzione anche di nostra figlia di 8 anni. In ogni stanza, galleria o salone, è riuscita a indicarci dettagli e scorci di infinita bellezza, nonostante ci fossero parecchi turisti. Da consigliare assolutamente

The reality did not match the offer. On 3 hours of visit we have only one. Really too bad, we were all surprised and disappointed.
