Good audio tour, once we figured out where to start

star star star star star


The audio tour was very good. Clear direction on where to walk and descriptions of the sites were generally good. The only exception being that it wasn't clear where we should start the tour until we downloaded the app. We didn't download the app until we got to the Roman amphitheater, and that's when we discovered that we needed to start near the cathedral. It's a long walk up the hill to the cathedral.
