What a fantastic afternoon we had! A truly beautiful place to visit with stunning views and a very intersting history. Bought tickets as a surprise birthday present for my boyfriend and he was really happy with it. Our guide, Rachel, was brilliant! Her enthusiasm for the place was easy to see and her knowledge comprehensive. Our group was made up of several nationalities and she kept us all involved amd informed! We will definitely come back next time we come to the area! The walk was not too challenging in itself amd any slightly harder parts were rewarded by stunning views and intriguing history. Would recommend walking boots or similar as the gravel paths can be a little uncomfortable in trainers. Overall the afternoon oon was worth every penny! Ben & Marzena

It was a beautiful experience, a walk suspended between a rocky wall with a breathtaking view. The stories with the guide are also interesting. Too bad there are no guides in Italian ... luckily ours with patience and mimicry managed to make us share the emotions of the stories. To do.

Alex was our tour guide! First I’ll start with - we didn’t want to do a tour but the Tkts were sold out for the day we had open to go- so if you get a tour you can go. That being said, we’re SO glad we did. Alex staggered our small group so we had the walkways to ourselves! Never felt like we were in a tourgroup! Then he’d stop along the way and tell us historical facts that made knowing something about the area so much more interesting!! We’d never have learned this on our own! Excellent day! Thank you Alex!!!
