If you have any sort of interest or love of history this is a must see. Give yourself plenty of time. Access from parking is a 15-20 minute hike but it is quite steep in places, narrow with a lot of uneven steps. Not stroller, wheelchair or disabled friendly by any stretch. Depending on your fitness or health levels you may need to stop a fair few times and catch your breath. Wear good shoes with rubber soles and good tread. The reason is the rocks are well worn, especially in the ruins and they can be exceedingly slippery. As a result the trip up is actually easier then down.
Kids seem to have a great time as they can use up all their spare energy and explore as well. There are not many safety barriers so you will need to keep an eye on the children.
There are two parts to the ruins make sure you see both. You can hire an audio tour but it is a stick thing that you have to hold up to your ear which we found really annoying as it meant you had to hold one hand up all the time which is hard when you are photographing and trying to hold on to things to not slip etc... The format was difficult to listen to and the heavy French accent coupled with the poor speaker made it hard to understand so we gave up. There was no decent written guide to take which was disappointing. Even so it is a wonderful site to explore and climb over/through. There are some good on line sites so I recommend having a bit of read before heading out. It made it much more enjoyable for us having some knowledge behind us. There is a hand out with a map that tells you where you are but not much more.
Views are breathtaking and this is a must see historical site if you are in the district. Weekdays are far less busy than weekends. My family who live local suggest to keep clear on long weekends.
Enjoy! You won't be disappointed.
