The tour lasts about 45 minutes and it is led by a professional guide who tells the story of the Orrido in a very engaging way, even for children.
The path is quite easy and suitable for everyone. You just need to consider that there are many steps, suspension balconies and narrow passages that could be unconfortable for people suffering from vertigo or claustrophobia.
Dogs access it's only allowed if you can hold them in your harms or keep them far from the group.
