  • A tough climb for the uninitiated, but nothing technical. Lots of people wear jeans and sneakers, but I would advise wearing good running shoes and some lighter fitting clothing ‘cos it can get sweaty and slippery. At the top you can explore the mountain trails, head down the way you came or do down via the cable car (check if it’s operational). Pack water, snacks and your mobile.
  • A good hiking trail suitable for anyone with average fitness levels. Offers amazing views and can completed in 1.5h to 2.5h one way. Easier to going up and would recommend you take the cable car down
