For me and my girlfriend too boring excursion. Only Italian guide, so we don't know what she said all the time. And without guide is this place uninteresting.

Guides speaks only italian, there is no information in English AT ALL. You get just map with text, that you can read on wikipedia. The exhibition seems interesting, but you dont understand nothing at all.
