Very positive experience. The tour was well organized. The only negative aspect: the info from the call center. I called to inquire about the tour structure. I was answered by a lady who did not understand Italian well and that she trusted me with incorrect information, on the basis of which I bought 2 tickets [for my wife and me) for admission to the English park and garden only (cost 20 euros) and these tickets were not necessary because the guide finished the tour told us that we could stay in the park as long as we wanted and we were not forced to go out with her as the call center lady told me.
The visit to the Royal Palace was really pleasant especially in the company of the guide Arcangelo Pisano, who passed on his passion for art, history and culture by accompanying us on a beautiful historical and also naturalistic journey. I highly recommend this visit to everyone. if on other sites it is found at lower prices.
Excellent tour very well organized. The driver Pierpaolo is very good and can only be applauded for his unobtrusive sympathy and courtesy. Guided tour by a truly expert person who illustrated the interiors of the palace with competence, calm and professionalism. Wide satisfaction, a little expensive but absolutely worth it
Very nice and beautiful location. Magnificent landscape that gives the idea about the ability of building at that time. We reccomand the visit of the entire complex.
