Thanks to advice on TA, we did not consider walking up. Unless you are keen on walking up steep hills on hot days, take the bus. Museum was OK - not particularly interesting. The best part of the visit was going round the walls. Brilliant...More

We arrived shortly before closing and were nicely told that we couldn't go into the museum, but could look around inside and walk the walls. So we did! There were maybe two other people there and it was a beautiful time of day, so the...More
