We were going to leave this off the itinerary, but timewise it worked out and very glad it did. The tour was extended by one hour (no problem with that, usually the opposite) and our tour guide (sorry, forgot her name) was excellent. The pace was not too fast, not too slow, but the information was great. There was a mix of history related to the castle and the items we were seeing and experiencing. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire visit.

Without a tour guide, we would’ve been in an out within 20 minutes. However, the tour guide explained the significance and historical importance of this site. She was informative, insightful and made the learning of history fun. A definite five star recommendation.

The Castel was amazing, I had no idea of it’s history and beauty! Our guide was sensational, she was so passionate and knowledgable, 100% so this place with a guide!
