What is an audio guide?
It is a spoken guide, which today is one of the easiest, most comfortable and most economical ways of being a tourist. It works as if the city was one big open-air museum. You position yourself in front of a building, monument etc. and you listen to the appropriate passage telling you about its history, details, curiosities etc.
