We had a great little tour with a young lady who spoke fantastic English. The tour was very informative and interesting. I think this is a neat place to visit if you are in the area and interested in the history.
Salt is pretty ordinary stuff, but wasn't always that way and this museum gives you a good story of how salt was "made" (harvested, really) for thousands of years in the area. The museum is guided; our guide offered English but spoke Italian much better. A quick trip, but worth it especially if combined with the WWF wildlife reserve nearby.... 更多

Communication was a problem for us as we do not speak Italian and although the very nice girl tried to explain the process, her grasp of English was lacking. Not her fault, we were their guests but... 更多
