Great place and views. You need to be in good shape if taking the steps up. Take your time and stop going up so you can enjoy the different city views.

Can take the funincular up and walk down. Visit the restaurant/ bar there for a drink overlooking this lovely city. Poor service but is still worth it just for the location.

It is 300 metres and about 7 minutes to walk. I didn't count the steps though :-)
