The tour is really full and you can have a taste from every part of the city. It is a very good value for money. Both tour guides are really helpful and funny and the most important thing is that they know very much the history of this Place. I recommend you strongly to pay an extra ticket of 1 euro to see the ancient scripts inside the Library
