... rental about 3:00 for a light snack after three hours of touring. We then walked the grounds and hillside forest area next to the property which provided a great view of the surrounding areas.

Afterwards, we decide to walk around a bit and then catch the Petit Train for a quick tour of the city. Ugh, not my favorite petit train. Actually, it was terrible. The narration was not good, the train ride was boring and our ...
