Important Information

Please note that this tour involves quite a lot of walking! If you don't feel comfortable climbing up the Castle Hill, we can spend more time in the city instead and e.g. visit some churches. There will be more than enough to discover in any case! I suggest taking a short coffee & toilet break in the middle of the tour, but whether, when and where we will do it, is completely up to you. There is no need to pay any entrance ticket, if we stick to the suggested itinerary. If you want to enter a church or a museum on a way - it is possible, but please note that it may make the tour longer and generate extra costs. For any special wishes or needs please contact me directly. Looking forward to hearing from you!
