Very nice bike tour - a great mix of impressions and information. Tonio was a very good guide who guided us through the districts with wit and great knowledge. We would be happy to book a different tour on your next visit. Thanks very much!

Ver much worth the visit. There is a great deal to see in the museum. We used the audio guide which was very helpful. Suggestion is to spend 1/2 a day there: 3-4 hrs are needed.
