Very good expérience with the guided tour. Our guide was a gold mine of information and historical facts. The place was crowded but she managed to be heard easily. We recommend.

Our guide was superb! Really worth while! We would have queued for hours, been super hot and bothered by the time we got in and not known what we were looking at
