We are quite an active couple so we had always planned that we would walk up to the Castle, to the surprise of the staff in the hotel who thought we were crazy. The walk itself is not that bad at all its more the heat so if you just make sure you have water and go at your own... More

Place is average but the view is excellent. You will see the sea from the top of the castle which is amazing. Full city view and harbor view. Nice restaurant next to the castle to have a nice meal.

It's location and history gave it the advantage of being the most important part in the city to see , it gives you the opportunity to see the hole city from different directions and angles .

We rented a moped to go up and my god the views are amazing. We did not go inside the museum part but it's worth going to look at the view. Cafes and restaurants going up to top.

The trip up the mountain is fun and you see this little village all the way up with small shops. If you go there to watch the sunset you will not be disappointed...the view from the top is absolutely spectacular. Be there around 18.30 if you want to make sure to catch the sun go down :-)

Lovely walk through the streets to the castle, but be aware of the boundaries as it is easy to overstep the right of way! And were politely invited to leave by a soldier or two!
