Our guided tours offer are not traditional, in fact they involve our guest in the life inside the Fortress. We said no to touch screens in favor of genuine and engaging human contact. A guide in historical clothes will stay with you in this journey, without telling only the technical knowledge but favoring the greatest possible interaction with demonstrations and tests, which visitors can take part.

Visitors will have a unique and personal experience, in line with vangard museum systems.

The visit, through the installations we created, include complete alives rooms. The guided tour is based each time on the group and the duration is about one hour. 

We suggest you to book your visit before your arrival.
