This is an intriguing and interesting place to visit, like nothing I've ever seen before. It was nice to do something different on holiday and this is certainly different. There are only 2 or 3 tours a day, so best check with the tourist information...More

We liked this guided tour through the former prison. It was really informative. Also it had many extra's, like an audioguided city tour, included.

Very nice guided tour in the former prison of Peschiera del Garda. You can enter almost all of the floors + rooms/prisons. Audio city tour included + map.

More like guided urban exploring than a typical museum tour. The guides are knowledgeable, friendly and more than competent in English - although not yet available there are plans for it to be in German also in future. The prison building itself is largely untouched...More

We were interested to read the English summary of the prison's history on the boards outside with the instruction to book a guided tour at the information centre. This done, we joined an "Italian group" and Sebin, the tour guide, very kindly explained details of...More
