easy to get to, unforgetable, remarkable, breathtaking and god knows why....it's free. it would be wise to go early and make
a day of it. there's just to much to see in a few hours. also be sure to rent the ipod with earphones that gives you the tour (also free)

I went there in the afternoon, unfortunately it was foggy so you didn't have a real nice view. Though, the sunset was great and the art was just breathtaking, most famous artist and something for every taste! Great architecture as well, I really enjoyed it. Unfortunately I had to leave before dark so I didn't have enough time to every exhibition. Make sure you plan enough time for your visit!

Beautiful! Not to be missed if you are a lover of fine arts. You could spend an entire day here and not realize nor regret it

I like the little tram and the fact that although it was drizzly they provided umbrellas. Very helpful staff. Dining options are also available.

Too much to see in one day or one trip. Amazing to walk, to sit and eat, take in the view. Don't miss it.
