The purpose of the itinerary is to provide tour guides a sort of framework by which to conduct their tours.
You may deviate from this itinerary if you so wish.
Below, I've provided a list of the places to see at each area of the castle. If the area was not mentioned, do not visit it during the Tour. Provide at least a picture for each area that you visit. An area that is listed as required is mandatory to visit. Areas that are suggested are not mandatory but it is advised to visit these areas. Areas that are optional are completely up to you to choose, as it doesn't really make a difference if the area is visited or not.
Remember to use a lot of pictures, and to provide a link towards the corresponding part of the forum for each area you visit (keep in mind that the goal of these tours is also to help the new writers get their bearings on this website!)
For each department that you visit, provide a brief description of the department. You can include details such as the name of the Head Professor, the year range of the classes, and an example of a class offered. For each common room that you link to, you can provide a brief description of the House, including details such as the administration and the qualities of those in the House... or anything you think will be be useful to know about it for a new kid.
