  • Excellent, enormous historic home of the dukes of Saxony. Visits are by guided tours - we caught the 10am tour (3 floors and the gardens were all closed but the informative tour still took an hour and a half!) which was conducted in Italian but there are information boards in each room. Photos without flash are allowed everywhere. Highly recommended. Wheelchair can be borrowed.
  • Beautiful, the park needs to be restored and opened again
