The guide was very friendly, thanks to him, the tour in the museum was an incredible experience, walking through the centuries-old walls, experiencing the most surprising medicine activities and my personal advice: "you will smell history".

Make sure you get a guided tour. The hosts are well informed and (in my experience) speak English rather well. The museum is a bit hidden away at the end of the main street in the old town, but well worth a visit. The staff...More
