Civico Museo della Risiera di San Sabba reviews

I would advice to take the audio guide for understanding better. The museum is full of interesting explanations, on the contrary there are no explanations around the concentration camp.
This is a less known, yet very important site to visit. A remarkable monument of an era that should not be forgotten. For 2 euros only you can buy an audio guide which I really recommend to do so, as otherwise you won't understand what to look at and you won't have all the background information. If you get there by car the most convenient is to park at the supermarket's parking lot nearby.
