The old castle ruins uphill is not very attractive but the views it offer are wonderful. We take the "yellow" bus uphill but walk downhill through the vineyards. The way downhill is easy and it finally ends up in the market square down town. Highly...More

We took the train up to the ruins and walked down. The view was incredible. The view from the restaurant, with floor to ceiling windows was breath taking. The food looked great (we ordered beer and cappuccino). A must see.
