Very interesting and personal tour. The sketches (reason for the booking) were not needed at all, it was that exciting. The TG made the children curious with many questions, so that they absorbed the explanations in an exciting way. Was also interesting and instructive for us parents. And thanks for the crumbled focchaggi. This tour will be remembered for a long time. Many many thanks.
