What a phenomenal castle!! Absolutely stunning, particularly on a hot day with clear skies. So worth the visit. Reasonably priced. We took a tour inside which was worth it, there are some fun slippers to wear to protect the floor. Well worth doing the inside...More

There are plenty of taxis available and I have seen many buses going to a from the attractions. If you do not see a taxi at the train station, look for flyer or advertisements for them. They are usually very easy to find.
