  • A beautiful place and a great private collection. I would recommend at least a couple of visits as there are so many pieces in the exposition but each guided visit lasts only 40 minutes.
  • The most wonderful place, the accommodation is splendid, brillant breakfast and most helpful host and the adjoining museum an absolute gem so a must for visitors to the city.
