Please note that we are unable to provide additional support for those with trouble walking or small children. The walking path may be frozen and slippery if there is snow. Please wear winter boots or non-slip footwear. The average temperature in the area during winter is about -1°C. Please wear warm clothing. The tour will not enter Roman Museum.

    * The behavior of wild monkeys is unpredictable. The park will be closed to visitors if monkeys do not come down to the park from the mountains. In such cases, the tour may be canceled on the day before the tour departs and a full refund will be issued.
