An essential stop for anyone with an interest in Italian history or in the Islands. This is carefully and beautifully maintained and knowledgeable guides provide an explanation of this fascinating place. It has the added value of fabulous views. Not to be missed.

Any museum is a place where you can visit and take your time appreciating the history, absorbing whatever is exposed there, but this doesn’t happen here. It isn’t a museum, it’s rather a quick tour with a very rude guide following you and shouting history...More
