Amazing view of the city and some amazing bridges in the sunset. The view is utterly breathtaking and especially during the late hours of the evening and hopefully an amazing orange/golden sunset!

We took the funicular up and walked down. The view of the city is very nice. We went back up on another day to have some wine at the restaurant. Very nice place with reasonably priced bottles of wine. Lovely afternoon respite from touring.

I first went by foot, but it's quite a hike and I wasn't really sure where to go. There's only one direction sign at the very bottom. I found it eventually, but if you've got the option it's better and faster to go with a...More
