Atop it stands an elegant, historical lookout tower with an observation deck that offers panoramic views of the city. You'll have the chance to hike, mountain bike, or run here. You can access the top of the mountain by chairlift; a short bus ride takes you to the bottom of the lift.

  • It is the highest hill in the city, and you get to the tower Elizabeth that dominates it, with a bus that starts from the city center. I got off the bus, we used the chairlift both to climb up and down. From the tower Elizabeth there is a wonderful sight, it is absolutely worth to go there, even if it is not a destination always present in the stages of the city. The panorama from up there is sensational and the cable car a great and fun way to reach it.

  • A great view from the top on a fine day. It is best to combine the stop here with the other nearby attractions like Children's Railway and the ride on the Chairlift.  more »
