Interesting but too short

It was a nice experience and the guide Jane was very kind and well prepared. Nevertheless the tour lasted less than an hour and even if i visited the main important sites of the uppertown i would have liked to deepen the knowledge of the city center. Jane was anyway very kind to suggest me to visit the Lenin Square and in giving me some directions.
