The boat and funicular were great. The resort was in off season (visited in mid-March) so almost everything at the top was closed. We enjoyed the view and walking around but couldn’t do much else unless we waited until later in the day. If you visit this time of year, I recommend waiting to come over until after 12:00.

Costs way to much. All you do is cross to the otherside and get up the mountain. Better buy you tickets at the local place.
