“Crowded but worth visiting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

We did not do the tour since we did not have the time, but took a driving tour and it seemed very interesting. There is a lot to see and do - and you could spend a whole day. Too many visitors and the place can get crowded with busloads

“Lots of construction”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

Since there was lots of construction around the palace, we didn't spend much time there. In addition, since it really isn't a palace, we passed time in the old neighborhoods. These were much more insteresting.

We took the Hop on and Hop off Bus tour but they did stop on Castle Hill. The view from the top is amazing! A must see.

“Most Impressive City view I've ever seen!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

I can't think of a more inspiring place. So easy to get to and well worth a few hours taking in the view if not eating in the restaurant. The park nearby is a shady place to sit for a few minutes before trekking even higher up the hill!
