Excellent to be able to enter without waiting, but if from Uk do Not forget passport you may well be asked for it, we were. The audio was very good, considerable amount of history and information, take plenty of time. The walk up the Giraldi Tower was arduous for some, but if taken careful with viewing stops well worth the effort.
