The views were lovely and great walks. We went up and down by cable car at a cost of 20 euros each. Well worth the cost.

We rode the gondola up the Wank and then we walked to the halfway point and rode the rest of the way down on the gondola. We would have walked all the way but it was too late in the day. It took us about...More
