I went with my teenage daughter. She enjoyed it as much as I did, but to be honest, this is a girl who chose to tour the archaeological sites of Greece for her senior trip. The home was beautiful. I rented the contraption for the audio tour, but only listened to a couple of the entries. I would not waste the extra $ on that again. Every room had a written description which explained everything well enough to satisfy my curiosity. It was interesting to see his take on the classics. The gardens were in ways a tribute to classics. There was an outdoor theater area and a maze. The gardens showed definite signs of years of neglect. I do believe they are investing in restoring much of it now. It's a beautiful site and I hope they can maintain it and restore the gardens to their former glory. It's such a gorgeous estate on the Bay and its fun to imagine the parties on the property. There are many parts of the home and grounds that would not be accessible by wheelchair, and many steps could be a challenge to visitors with limited mobility.
