Hike up the hill on the flight of narrow and uneven steps to reach the 200-years-old grottoes carved out of the sheer cliffs. Along the way, you will pass corridors and pavilions with colorful sculptures. You can also take a chairlift to the top, enjoy the panoramic views of the lake and the city, and then walk down the plank road from the grottoes.
