we visited the castle in Autumn and it was still very warm. Entrance fee is very cheap and it allows you to enter into 2 different castles/museums.

It is a LONG and STEEP winding ascent from the bottom to the top. It is actually probably easier to go up than down but as has been said, the cobblestones make the path uneven which could make pushing a buggy up quite tough... More
