    The funicular is quite short but it is extremely steep so we walked down but took the funicular up which saved on the legs

    Wandering through halls and rooms, one can grasp bits and parts of the history of a family that once had its share in the European history.

    Beautiful place to walk on a sunny day. No restaurants were open (covid restrictions) but there was a snack bar that opened up in the afternoon – seemed to be selling mainly drinks and snacks. Many benches set all along the boardwalk, and a nice place for a picnic. During covid restrictions a mask has to be worn when walking in that area but it was still very pleasant.

    Beautiful views across the lake and further to Switzerland. Distant mountains can be seen on clear days. Also a good location to watch the sunset.

    After a lovely and easy walk through well maintained forest paths, you reach a clearing that has a very special feel to it, with benches around for you to sit and contemplate and be grateful for those who helped the Jews to hide and to escape.

    Nice to walk along the promenade then get a ride up the Funicular (€1) and walk back down. We didn't find much else to do round there, at the top of the Funicular is a lovey view but if you venture away from that area it gets a bit rough, the local Intermache will rummage through your backpack and accuse you of stealing anything in packets

    The permanent exhibits, although interesting for older kids and adults - commercial sailing ships, smuggling, and sculpture - they may not hold the attention of 6-11 year olds, but the temporary (2017) exhibition of engravings of the southern coast of Lake Geneva (2018 will feature the northern coast) is accompanied by a very creative game book (livret-jeu) that captured the attention and interest of a 7 and a 10 year old for over 30 minutes - and it is educational to boot. Quite unexpected for an exhibition of 17th - 19th century engraving - a real credit to the organizers for reaching out to the younger visitors. The temporary exhibition has English, German and Italian explanations. Entry to the museum is free of kids under 11, and quite reasonable for others. The museum is located in the basement of the Office of Tourism, which provides an opportunity to find even more things to do in the area, and there is a beautiful view of the harbor below.

    Crete of course is an island. There is a large square/mall surrounded by cafes where you can catch buses and mix with the locals. Food is cheap and generally good and plenty of drinks. It is not a place for teenagers. Many of the museums are close by and the buses are easy to access to beautiful beaches. Locals are friendly and accomodating. No need to tip unless you want to. Highly recommended for position access and cobblestones

    This is not a tourist attraction however this is a must seen. The shop is a family run business since years. Their cheese is AMAZING. This is not cheap however you get the top-notch quality. They can pack air-tighten if you want to travel back with some cheesd
