Finally, venture down a secret passageway, guided by torches, and visit Calle dei Assassini (Assassin’s street) and learn how it became notorious for robberies, murders, and gangsters.

Large group. Very devoid of actual information and clarity- vague stories with little grounding. We ended up leaving before the tour was over.

Dirtections for where we were to meet were poor. We were "at the statue," but in the wrong plaza about 100 feet from the right plaza. So we missed the tour. Bummer!
