We were lucky because the weather was really nice that day, so we were able to take full advantage of the view (knowing that the day before it had been foggy all day). It was simply magnificent. I highly recommend it!

I used the hiking path to reach the palace. However, I found the directions difficult to follow. On the way down, I thought I could walk the road, as I believed the path would be too slippery to navigate safely. I wish there had been some guidance. It is not possible to walk the road—it is far too dangerous. I was then unable to find a different hiking path. I took a random (less traveled path and ended up on the wrong side of the mountain. I ultimately called an Uber when I reached a road.

Very pretty furnished palace. Be sure to plan your arrival time so that you can get there by car or other means of transport. Between the park gate and the meeting point for the tour, it's indicated as a 30-minute walk. It depends on your physical condition: we did it in 15 minutes, 30 if you have a stroller or are elderly, etc.

Beautiful palace. Unfortunately, it's very far away and it's difficult to get to and from the palace, but I highly recommend a visit.
