Carla was an excellent guide who showed us the four different stops during the 3 hours long guide also in English. The first stop was the palazzo was our favourite! It was hard to find info about the visiting hours in English on the homepage so we had to stop by the place where it had info about were the call to book the guide.

The three hours tour gave us the possibility to learn more about the area, and to appreciated alternative and unusual touristic sites. We learned about the travelling conditions at the time, about life in the mines, and about history. The explanations are clear, the guides are knowledgeable, and they speak English. Do not miss it
