Loved it up here. Go in the morning as it is empty and the lights falls across the city just perfectly for stunning photos. Recommended

The walk is little effort for such a great view, although it's quite steep so not good for limited mobility. You can't go in the castle, and it's not much to see from the outside, which means it's a trip for a very small portion...More
