Visiting this island brings to mind Italian history. Garibaldi is the father of modern Italy. He united Mainland Italy with Sicily and Sardinia. The one thing he was unable to accomplish was to bring Corsica into the fold. Italians that know Caprera say he build his home on the island so that he could see Corsica every day!

The guys who suppose to guide the tour terrible, moody, do not open their mouth, even to reply to any questions, they were with an angry face the whole tour, the only time, he made a noise, it was to stop people...

Any museum is a place where you can visit and take your time appreciating the history, absorbing whatever is exposed there, but this doesn’t happen here. It isn’t a museum, it’s rather a quick tour with a very rude guide following you and shouting history in italian. Once you pay your ticket, and tell them you don’t speak Italian, they... More

33 of us visited the White House on 28 September 2014. There were two official guides present, who were mainly interested in getting us in and out of the house as quickly as possible. In spite of paying €6 each there were no brochures available in English. Fortunately we had our own English speaking Italian tour guide who was able... More

We arrived to the gates closed, it is April. The ticket desk was closed, we walked through the side gate and was met by staff who politely asked us to go back to the desk. We purchased the tickets and without being asked were given a guide, a lad who spoke English. I do not think they have many. This... More
