You can get a nice view of the city and the pictures are very good from up there. It shouldn’t take more than one hour to visit it. We went there by car.

Many spots with free parking, and you can wander all over the huge site for free, only the museum and tunnels are charged. The fortifications go on forever, I spent 2 hours trying to see them all
