There was a long line, in spite of us being from an organized group. However, it was nice to look around while waiting for our turn. A photographer took our picture in the cable car before leaving.

The views from the quite long cable car ride are beyond any description: the ocean below, the ships in the port, the red tiled rooves, the vegetation... we were speechless. Read Less
