It's great!!! Very high, very beautiful. Be aware: it's impossible to buy the tikets in tower. You should go at first to the touriscenter. If You are not fit, it Will Be very difficult, to climb 498 very tight steps.

This is a must for any tourist - the climb up the stairs may kill you but it will be worth it for the mind blowing view from the top. Groups go up and down together so there is no horribly scary passing on the...More
