  • Such a romantic terrasse, nice to walk during the day and night! It was Wednesday night in September, luckily not a raining day. I felt I was in a fairy tale and dream town with extraordinary nightlight of river view and small town down on the hill.
  • Beautiful views. We went up with the Funiculaire, and walked down . Quite a few benches to sit there. You can just walk and enjoy the views. There happened to be a street performer by the statue when we were there. Look into the glass cases. We didn't go into the hotel but its a beautiful background. I was covered in gnats, for some reason they liked my yellow shirt- had to put a light gray sweater on - it was quite awful. Other than that, it's beautiful
