  • Cool castle that overlooks the city. The interior courtyard is beautiful with it's circular design. Fairly reasonable price to get in (5 euro I believe?). Likely would spend 30-40m exploring here. Definitely make sure you make it to the top of the castle for the views.
  • A historical place with amazing view! Incredible location, above the city, you can see literally everything from above. There are two ways of reaching it out - by car or by foot. If you choose to go by foot - be prepared for a lot of stairs but it is really unforgettable!
