It's possible to reach Diana Lookout Tower by funicular Diana, next to Grand Pupp Hotel. The city's view is amazing and at that place there is a restaurant and the Butterfly's house. It is a must-visit!

Worth the effort coming up here on foot (easy pleasant walk through the forest) and climbing the 150 stairs to get some awesome views of KV. All for free! The restaurant serves really cheap beer, good after the hike in summer.
