The audio-guide is great, however be sure to ask for one with full battery. My turned off half-way and when I tried to turn it on again the language was changed. Nice views, interesting history and archeological digs.

Don't feel they have made the most of it but it's worth a visit. The road up there is a bit tight but drivable there is a bus there too.
