  • Incredible but very difficult even if you are considerably fit. It took me around 2 hours with multiple breaks along the way and I wasn’t even very prepared. Choose the right timing, I hiked up at 2PM in July so it was technically a suicide attempt. The views are insane and far better than expected.
  • A path with very nice views but physically demanding. Many and very steep stairs and sometimes slippery. I would recommend this sentiero only to people that are used to challenging walks and wear good shoes. It‘ quite exposed to sun, so you might want to take enough to drink with you. Path gets quite crowded from april on!
