You can get a nice view of the city and the pictures are very good from up there. It shouldn’t take more than one hour to visit it. We went there by car.

Many spots with free parking, and you can wander all over the huge site for free, only the museum and tunnels are charged. The fortifications go on forever, I spent 2 hours trying to see them all

The time we went, unfortunately the tunnels were closed so we missed an important part of the visit, anyway, the place is nice for a walk and even better if you follow the road down the hill into the river.
