We took the one hour guided tour to allow us to see inside the library itself and it was well worth it. The architecture is stunning and to see the rows and rows of old books is an experience. It is a shame you can't have a bit more time or freedom to look around, but we understand why on both counts as it is a working library. Lots of information given - very interesting.
