Tip Regarding Italian sigths and Museums:
They are often not always staffed at the sight
If so, you can find a telephone number to the Comune or the Turist Office
(Pro Loco) at the entrance. Ask for an English speaking guide who will arrive shortly after. This service is free (except from normal ticket) but it is well seen to tip the Guide.
