The obvious draftsmanship, hand-carving, choices of wood, marble/tile, selections of chandeliers, was incredible....More

What a wonderful (and well-priced!) tour of this beautiful historic mansion. The 1-hour tour was absolutely terrific and info-packed. Our tour guide, Andrea, was so knowledgeable, and did a super job! This is a "Don't miss!" from our perspective.
