Although the information given was good, the audio man spoke too fast. Big dislike to the navigation system used. We sturggled getting to the points. We finished it after 10 minutes due to this reason.

If you are very interested in writers it is a nice walk.

A real pleasure to discover this artistic district by strolling through the streets at will and without constraint ... I recommend because you learn a lot of things with the voice of a guide who follows you throughout the visit. Concept at the top!
