Travelled both ways on a retun ticket and it was worth it for the fantastic views and access to Monte. Was a bit nerve wracking at first but did enjoy it.

Superb view from on top of the mountain which must not be missed. For those scared of heights do not worry the ride down is at a nice slow pace.
