It was neat to see his house as I just loved the book: a farewell to arms. Tours take an hour, but you can do it alone or piggy back on the various tour talkers. Rare it is to walk around a house built in 1850s. Look for the very cool six-toed Hemingway kitty cats. I love to see all of the national historic landmark on the islands and there are plenty. I would have never thought way back they a house could have such beautiful gardens and a Huge Swimming Pool.
