Went for a trip out in a rental car from the Marriott. A nice drive through the various towns. A real jem of history a fascinating place, watch the introductory video near the gift shop first for a good introduction. Well worth a trip out.

I'm not sure where the bus stop is as we rented scooters, but if the stop is at the main road it is a long and very steep road. Also, even if you are dropped off where you pay it is still an effort to get to the top. If... More
