... for both of us was the library. It was very impressive. The difficulty was that much of it has been reconstructed, and although on the one hand that is wonderful as it gives some indication of scale and grandeur etc, on the other hand you can't help but wonder if it is in fact correct. There were some glaring "mistakes", for instance in the road, to stop the marble being too slippery they cut grooves or scored the marble and some of the marble slabs ...
