Really enthusiastic staff . Very good explanation of the main fossil "Antonio" and a general view of recent palaeontology. Good value at €5. A lovely walk from Duino past a Grotto.

The site is in reality very small. But in a couple of meters the guide will tell and show you a lot of interesting things about dinosaurs.
