    Very antique! So much history and character in one place!

    One should beware that the tour is actually about Hemingway's childhood home and life. Much detail is given about his grandparents and parents and siblings, which may be disappointing to someone who hoped to learn about Hemingway, the author. The tour guide was incredibly versed in the life of the man as a child and the home he lived in until the age of 6. It's just not what I hoped for, so for that, 3 stars.
