We were blown away with the beauty of this building! The view from the gardens on the opposite side of the river is a must! The guide we had wasn't good. I'd have preferred an audio guide.

We went at 11:30ish and barely beat the crowds. Go early for optimal pics. Watch out for kids when you go through the West gates who will try to pickpocket you.

I went in December, so just remember a cardigan and YOUR OWN CAMERA. You can book a tour guide (prior to... More
