I don't think admission is free before 10:00 am. Admission for the all inclusive ticket is reduced if you purchase before 10:00. However, if you purchase online, the all inclusive ticket is not as expensive. As well, if you purchase online, the ticket is good for the one day. All inclusive ticket gives you access to the fortress and a return ride on the funicular.
