We were not sure of what to expect, we were pleasantly surprised by the amazing views and historical sites. It was 2.5 hour return hike with quite a steep climb. Would suggest good shoes, long pants (some of the bushes along the way were prickly),...More

It is a steep walk up the rock, but the views of the city and sea are splendid! The path itself is not suitable for young kids or the elderly, because the path is not always well paved. Also, no indication is given of the...More

Splendid walk up to the ruins. Not many tourists so no pushing or pulling on the small rocky paths. The man at the entrance was a bit bossy but in the end he helped us getting in. The gates close at 7pm so make sure...More

Fabulous views so it is definitely worth the profuse sweating that is inevitable - and the €4 entrance fee. It took us 25 minutes from the main square to the top.

It’s a great walk, and well worth it - though I wouldn’t want to do it in August! The hill is 270m high and the terrain is fairly rugged in parts so take water and wear sensible shoes. The man at the booking office told...More

We climbed to the top in what seemed like hurricane force winds! A little scary, but heck, that made it all the more fun. Well-signed, no possibility of getting lost. Amazing views in all directions. Not too crowded. Very evocative historical site. Highly recommend.

As best I recall, there are small signs up from Piazza Garibaldi, or a block north at Via Carbonari. My pics show a staired road up to a pleasant side street which leads to the hike entrance. Very easy, short little up from... More
