The place is very well kept and a lot of time was spent on researching on the place. Paolo the one who guides the tour is very well versed on history and the volunteers are very welcoming. A must visit.

When expats get involved in a voluntary organisation, it's the best of both worlds, serious professional approach, with locals can do inputs and networks. Rather than leaving this gem derelict it has been given a revamp and made accessible. Should be in the running for...More
