Some of the information was useful, but not enough about the rest of the buildings and not enough info on resuming tour if you had to leave it. Also it was difficult finding the start.

Very good guided tour, once I’d managed to download it (my fault - didn’t install the correct app… Needed the voicemap and not the La Vacanza Travel app to run it!). Wouldn’t really call it “eccentric” though - very interesting historically, brought my attention to several buildings and parts of buildings that I certainly wouldn’t have noticed otherwise. Worth the money, and would use again for different locations if available.
