We have been there in the afternoon to visit one of the places where the BarLume was recorded. The panorama is great, the view is amazing, the cabinovia trip is a bit frightening but manageable. A place to see, the view there is extraordinary.

Once you get off the lift, you will still have a 20 minute hike that is over rocky terrain. From the summit, there are beautiful vistas of the island and surrounding areas. Note that the day we were there, credit cards could not be used...More

If you want to fetch some fresh air, I highly reccoemend it, but go only if sunny because you won't miss the views. Go by cabin or hike, even with the bikes. When on top you have to step on some rocks on the little...More
