The man in this place that served us was extremely friendly and helpful to tourists. It is such a shame that the food was just no good. We had breakfast here and it was tasteless. As I said a real shame.

The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
