Beautiful place. We got here quite late and had to park at the parking lot (I think it was 4-5 Euro) as there was no spot along the road. Even tough later on we found out there are more free spots just down the road....More

Nice hike , very well marked. The views are breathtaking. The hike is not really super demanding, but if you are not fit, count enough time and carry enough water because there are no fonts on the way. Take good shoes!
