Very positive experience. The tour was well organized. The only negative aspect: the info from the call center. I called to inquire about the tour structure. I was answered by a lady who did not understand Italian well and that she trusted me with incorrect information, on the basis of which I bought 2 tickets [for my wife and me) for admission to the English park and garden only (cost 20 euros) and these tickets were not necessary because the guide finished the tour told us that we could stay in the park as long as we wanted and we were not forced to go out with her as the call center lady told me.

Very nice and beautiful location. Magnificent landscape that gives the idea about the ability of building at that time. We reccomand the visit of the entire complex.

Very impressionable: the gardens are very big, the Reggia also but few furnitures and paintings. The gardens are very big but with few flowers.

Truly interesting and dynamic tour, very professional and kind guide. Ci ha spegato tutto. Truly consigliato.

Well organized visit and excellent guide. Very satisfied.
