Spent a couple of hours here enjoying the views and reading a lot of the information in the museum. It's well presented and still a work in progress. There is a lovely gift shop and bar here too. A must see.

I'm not sure where the bus stop is as we rented scooters, but if the stop is at the main road it is a long and very steep road. Also, even if you are dropped off where you pay it is still an effort to get to the top. If... More
