The place is nice, with narrow boheme streets, boiling with history, better see it from a distance or outside the busy season. The parking is a nightmare, everywhere in the city, the traffic is more than terrible - the only city in Europe where traffic is worse is Napoli, but this is another story. So if you're patient enough, it's... More

Charming citadel with plenty of restaurant and tourist shop, not really historical building but strolling through is very pleasant. Some nice view of the cliffs from couple of places. It is perfect for after beach and evening shopping and dinner

Wonderful site as you approach. Car parking difficult but free if you take a one hour boat trip which is really worth it as you see the City from the sea. We came later in the afternoon when it was cooler and used the little tourist train to save walking up some 190 odd steps. Stayed on for dinner in... More

Being inside those old walls gives you an inkling of the dangers, the ilanders hat to endure. Even if it is very "touristic" now, the old structures of the town are impressive. Great view on top and a "toto trend" for unfit people. Always a pompous Yacht or to in the harbour to be envious of...and a lot of rather... More

It's always nice to put feets on these gloryous streets, full of history. A glass of Pietra, local bier or pancackes with nutela is a must :)

The views and atmosphere, though it is an energetic climb. If you are physically limited, there is a small road train that runs up the hill.

Great views from here and a lovely piece of history definitely worth visiting. It was a very hot afternoon and the adventure inside the Bastion was cool and breezy. We watched the boats coming in and out of the harbour form an excellent viewpoint
