  • We were very lucky with the weather on the day of our visit - it was sunny, almost no wind and really warm. A walk outside was very pleasant - the paths are very nicely made, information is sufficient...  more »
  • To see even if not "only" but always engaging, maybe a bit incomplete. Friendly and helpful staff even Italian speaking, which is no small feat around here. However if you go this way stop. There is good parking and the site is a nice walk.
