Being a living site, every time you visit it they teach you something new. It is worth it, even in summer, since the temperatures are bearable at night. A very dynamic visit. The explanations make the two hours go by very quickly. The audio system allows you not to have everyone glued to the guide.

We liked it very much only that there was no drink service or bathrooms and it was quite hot, otherwise perfect
