Nice view - but a bit overrated - must take a long taxi ride to get to the bottom of the Gondola. Bring your own snacks :)

I usually just take a taxi. From the old town it should be about a 15-20 minute ride depending on the traffic. If you dont pay the driver to wait for you, you might have to wait awhile for someone to bring you back down.

It's just a good view. There is a mini cafe but not worth eating there. There is a chapel. Not much else.
