  • Amazing view and great place to walk. I saw people having picnic, enjoying the sun. Make sure you have water with you especially if you go with kids. There are 2 restaurants so you can charge your batteries before you start climbing. Enjoy!
  • Nice place to visit. There are a lot of stairs but we were with a child on a buggy. At first we thought we couldn't go down, but on the right side of the movement there is a path to go down, making it accessible for people who can't walk the stairs, but can go down and up the hill.
