We (3 adults, aged 79, 46, 42 and 3 children, aged 14, 12 and 7) had a great tour, although we said our goodbyes after 3 hours as we were getting tired and hungry. Our children didn't speak italian, but they enjoyed the tour all the same amd we really enjoyed it: Maurizio never stopped talking and filled us with a tonne of facts. Would definitely recommend
