Well well well. If you want to go to the top, you have to be fit and not subject to vertigo.
But what a site and view.
Well worth the climb and visit!
When you reach the top it is an amazing view on the surroundings, but getting there is .... the hardest part!

Its a vast area and the attractions are all nearby only. The ticket charges are a little too much but wouldn't complain for the way its preserved and taken care of.

Its fun and thrilling to walk all the way up to the rock. My 5 year old son walked but it was not easy. There is about 1500 steps and some very steep stone steps and some artificially made. The view from the top is excellent and also the climb is fun if you do it slow and steady. We did the total journey and back in one hour but its usually completed in 90 minutes.

Beautiful gardens, nice walk to the rock. You should go really early in the morning because at 10 all the big tourists busses arive and it gets to crowded to take the tour in peace.
