Very interesting visit thanks also to the excellent guide, who was able to make it captivating even for our 11 and 13 year old daughters: Thanks EDDY !! Flat to the organization of get a guide as it offers three-hour visits when in the gallery, due to covid19, you can only stay 2 hours.

Good guide.

The guide gave us a very good explanation in the museum, but there were only 2 hours instead of 3 hours. So we missed the garden of the villa. He still went to the park with us, but we didn't need a guide for that. That was a shame because a private guide costs a lot of money!
