Great visit if you like Greek history/mythology like Empress Elizabeth. Lots of sculptures to look at, nice gardens, and the huge painting of Achilles is impressive.

We went to the palace on the red bus which was well sign-posted and easy to find. The palace itself is imposing but inside is very disappointing unless you are really interested in the German royal family! The collection seems a bit random, bits and...More
