    Brilliant navigation through the collection with substantial time spent on masterpieces. Our guide Mattia was charming. Fantastically educated, and additionally engaged with the pieces. A real pleasure to hear his commentaries. Rather than recite dates and figures, he told us stories about the people and how they approached the creative process. We just loved it

    Our guide was so insightful and really made the artwork come alive! She was super engaging and pointed out lots of things to us that were super interesting. This is definitely the best way to see the collection and in the 2 hours time you really get to see everything.

    Great tour guide. The gallery is awesome. Would be 5 stars, but we were kicked out of the museum because it was closing (so we only spent an hour inside which didn't feel like enough time). We also weren't able to see much of the garden at night. Would be 5 stars if not for those reasons.
