This was not our first trip to see the Newport mansions. It was several years ago that we had visited Rosecliff before. The audio tour was free with the price of admission. There was also an exhibit on the second floor of Pierre Cardin fashions from through the second half of the twentieth century that was a bonus for this off season tour. In season the beautiful gardens and views would be an added bonus of the tour. The house is not so huge that you'd be exhausted at the end. The staff were helpful and friendly.
