Beautiful castle and a nice tour. Tourguide is well informed and speaks several languages that makes it easy to follow. The view is stunning. To get to the castle you have to walk up a steep hill.

We had a great tour from a well-informed guide. We were only two couples on the tour, both English speaking, so we were not a difficult group! The contents of the castle were very interesting and well explained and the whole event went very smoothly;...More

There is a small touristic train that goes up the hill during the high (summer) season. It goes every hour. Departure is in city center (you cannot miss it).
