Got there by the cable car, a lot of old ruins, walls, a mosque, few shops and great Gardenia restaurant, fantastic views towards the port and Kleopatra beach on the other side. Worth visiting.

Visited the castle today and I think I preferred the view from afar. The gondola ride was probably my highlight, all else was a little overrated. The views were nice but would’ve been better without the smog... the castle walkways are pretty dangerous, please wear...More
