We walked up to the lookout using the stairs north from the cathedral. This meant that we had it to ourselves between the tourist groups. A nice view of the town but not a place to sit and spend time.

We had a day stop here on our cruise and took the choo choo train around the city and to the look outs, a good facility. This was a very good view point of the city and bays and I think it is worth it.

I don't know why they promote this place for tourists... It's just an old theater building not even pretty with random spray paint tags on the walls. I am very surprised that tourists' choo choo trains even stop there. Embarrassing to say this is a...More

Walking paths criss-cross the hill, or there's the road up. Busses don't down go up here but will drop you at thebottom if you prefer bus/walk to an organised tour. Great 360 degree views from the top.

The viewpoint at the FOL Theatre is amazing. Lots of street paintings by the very talented local youth on the walls of the building. The Christopher Reeve painting is stunning. Took the Green Choo Choo Train from Lyvai Tour to get to the place. The...More
