  • Impressive and huge; much bigger than what you would expect. Definitely worth visiting, however, additional parts are basically only ruins. Entrance is at the bottom level part closer to the the Piazza Duomo, fee is 6EUR pp for adults.
  • The exhibition is amazing, I definitely recommend it. I had one quite annoying issue with the tickets. Just make sure to explain to the cashier that you are eligible for a discount if you are under 25, because the cashier just makes the assumption that you are older quite annoying.
