What people are saying:

beautiful scenery, crystal clear water and blue sky. Its like you can breathe again in fresh air. You can either take the chair lift to cross from one place to other or can walk along the mountains. Definitely give it a try, its low budget. Just remember to bring your own water and snacks to avoid buying expensive stuff from vendors.

    Beautiful Site

    The architecture is amazing and scene along the coastline is beautiful. Wear comfortable shoes, there are a lot of steps to climb, if you are going to the top.
