The reserved entry worked well. However, we expected the guide to tell us a bit more about the museums, or we would have expected her to tell us which museums to visit and which ones are most recommended. It was also not written anywhere that the audio guide is not included and that you have to pay extra: We found that out on site.

For sure it’s an Historical monument which is a must visit and would be of some interest to you if you have a likings about history however if you have kids to accompany you then think twice as they won’t have any interest in visiting these old buildings and they will ask why you have brought us here??? Avoid visiting in summers if you don’t like hot weather, it is really exhausting. Otherwise, the skip the line is very convenient, you just have to follow the instructions mentioned in your booking about meeting point, the person from booking office will assist you to get a ticket from inside. You have reasonable priced cafe, pizzeria to fulfill your hunger

Been there many times before, and it's always a pleasure to come back! This time there were an incredible number of visiting people, which meant that space in all rooms was tight. A bit of a shame, as it would have been valuable to have some time in each room to enjoy the artworks, but that is perhaps not to be expected in the middle of the summer holidays/high season.
